Danish film-maker Lars von Trier accepts the decision of the Cannes film festival to ban him over remarks he made about Adolf Hitler, one of his producers told AFP on Thursday.

"Lars accepts whatever the festival directors want to do to punish him," said Meta Foldager, one of the producers of "Melancholia", which remains in competition for the Palme d'Or.

"He fully accepts that... It's up to the festival to decide what is good for the festival," she said, adding that von Trier was "fine and doing his work" promoting the film.
