(Changes headline to give cause of stoppage as technical glitch)
CANNES, France, May 19 (Reuters) - The Cannes Film Festival stopped the world premiere screening of the Netflix movie "Okja" after five minutes on Friday after sustained heckling from the audience, apparently due to a technical glitch in the movie's projection.
"Okja", starring Tilda Swinton and Jake Gyllenhaal, is one of the hottest movies at this year's festival but controversial because U.S. video-on-demand company Netflix has refused to screen it in French cinemas. (Reporting by Robin Pomeroy; Editing by Ralph Boulton)
