This year’s Cannes Film Festival canceled

The 73rd edition of the Festival de Cannes was due to open its doors this week in the French coastal city, but the measures imposed by the French Government to curb the spread of the new coronavirus forced it to postpone the edition and contemplate new options, given the impossibility of carrying out this year.

Frémaux explained that the festival’s management will publish a list of films that would be put out to tender, if one took place, including films that will be released in the spring of 2021.

After publishing the list of films in competition in June, his intention is to organize events in theaters, but there will be no digital edition of the sample, nor does he intend to leave this year’s films for the 2021 edition.

The festival team watched a total of 1,500 films, almost the same as in previous years, although this time around the debate was virtual.

As for the possibility of collaborating in the autumn in other festivals, such as Venice, Toronto, San Sebastián or Zurich, Frémaux explained that many competitions invited him.
