Eastwood was honored with several screenings of his films, including one marking the 25th anniversary of "Unforgiven." In a staged conversation on Sunday, the 86-year-old director said he might revisit acting "someday."

The last time Eastwood appeared on screen was 2012's "Trouble With the Curve." Before that, he starred in his own 2008 film, "Gran Torino."

Sofia Coppola's remake of Don Siegel's Clintwood-starring 1971 film "The Beguiled," is to premiere this week in Cannes. Eastwood sounded unfamiliar with Coppola's movie.

He's currently preparing to direct "The 15:17 to Paris," about the foiling of a 2015 Islamic State group attack aboard a train from Brussels.
