Canceled due to COVID-19 / Here is when the Cannes Film Festival will take place
The pandemic forced a series of international events to change their course, timing and even organization.
Such is the Cannes Film Festival, which could not take place in the spring due to the pandemic. Organizers have announced they will be holding an extraordinary edition in late October.
"The jury, the composition of which will be revealed soon, will award the 'Golden Palm' for short films and the 'Cinéfondation' awards for young talent," the organizers said in a statement to the media.
Failing to be held as every year in May, the Cannes Film Festival ‘surrendered’ by publishing only a list of 56 films that were part of its official selection for 2020.
