The Cannes Film Festival has scheduled a three-day event in October . The three day event will screen four previews of films from the 2020 Official Selection, the short films selected in Competition and the Cinefondation’s school films .
The organisers said in a press release that the Palais des Festivals will host a ‘Special Cannes’ event, which will run from October 27 to 29. This announcement has come after the 2020 edition of the prestigious movie gala was postponed amid the pandemic.
They said, “We are as delighted to see the festival hosted by the Cannes City Hall in October as we were sad not to have enjoyed its company in May. Thanks to this collaboration, films from the Official Selection will be shown on the Croisette. This is our way to be in Cannes, alongside its population and all the professionals with whom we work hand in hand every year.”
The next edition of the prestigious film festival will take place next year from May 11 to May 22.
