The Cannes Film Festival was cancelled last year due to the pandemic and the film festival organisers announced that this year’s festival will now take place from July 6-17, about two months after its typical period.
Last year Cannes postponed the film festival but later decided to cancel the entire event due to the pandemic. The festival still went ahead with a selection announcement to celebrate the films it had planned to include in its prestigious lineup.
This year, organisers are intent on having a festival, one way or another. The Cannes Film Festival, which had run for nearly 75 years with few interruptions, is currently hoping the coronavirus recedes enough by summertime.
