Corona postpones the Cannes Film Festival to next July

The Cannes International Film Festival announced in a statement, Wednesday, the postponement of this year’s edition to next July, due to the Coronavirus pandemic.

The organizers said in a statement reported by Reuters, that the festival “will be held from July 6 to 17, instead of next May 11 to 22, as previously scheduled.”

The festival was canceled last year and replaced by a lower-level event last October, during which short films were shown without the presence of movie stars, directors, and producers.

Hollywood stars often flock to the Croisette Park in the Mediterranean city to attend the two-week show, the largest cinema show and a major market for the industry.

The Corona pandemic led to the closure of many of the most luxurious hotels, restaurants, and bars in the city surrounded by palm trees, which usually appeared in a glamorous and vibrant image.
