The Cannes Film Festival will hold a special three-day physical event in Cannes from October 27-29, it has announced.
The 2020 edition of the film festival was cancelled in May due to the Covid-19 pandemic.
The festival also officially confirmed its intention to go ahead with its 74th edition in Cannes from May 11 to 21, 2021, reports screendaily.com.
The event in October will be a public focused program. It will preview four features from Cannes’s special 2020 Official Selection, which was announced back in June.
The event will open with Emmanuel Courcol’s comedy-drama — The Big Hit, which stars Kad Merad. The film is due to release in France in December.
The closing film will be Bruno Podalydès’s split identity comedy French Tech, which will screen in the presence of the director and lead actress Sandrine Kiberlain.
