Cannes Film Festival Postponed

Yet another event has been postponed due to the coronavirus. The Cannes Film Festival was slated to take place in May but now organizers are looking to reschedule in late June to early July.

The statement reads as follows:

At this time of global health crisis, our thoughts go to the victims of the COVID-19 and we express our solidarity with all of those who are fighting the disease.

Today, we have made the following decision : The Festival de Cannes cannot be held on the scheduled dates, from May 12 to 23. Several options are considered in order to preserve its running, the main one being a simple postponement, in Cannes, until the end of June-beginning of July, 2020.

As soon as the development of the French and international health situation will allow us to assess the real possibility, we will make our decision known, in accordance with our ongoing consultation with the French Government and Cannes' City Hall as well as with the Festival's Board Members, Film industry professionals and all the partners of the event.

France currently has thousands of cases of the virus and is in a state of lockdown.
