Cannes 2021? He was definitely one of the most likely candidates for a Cannes selection this year, before the festival was impacted by the COVID-19 epidemic. It will probably be for the next edition.

Artists of the seventh art who hoped to be invited to the Cannes Festival, to win a prize or even to be awarded the famous Palme d'Or so coveted, saw their chances soar. This year, the pandemic made it impossible for the prestigious event to take place from 12 to 23 May 2020. President Pierre Lescure and general delegate Thierry Frémaux, confirmed the cancellation of this 73rd edition which was to be chaired by Spike Lee. If no prize can be awarded, the 2,067 applications (from 147 countries!) Have indeed been consulted and the best of them have received official certification which will accompany their theatrical release.

How Much Will the 'Cannes 2020' Label Help When There's No Cannes Film Festival?

  How Much Will the 'Cannes 2020' Label Help When There's No Cannes Film Festival? The 2020 Cannes Film Festival isn't happening. So what was the point of Cannes organizers holding a press conference on Wednesday in Paris to announce the movies that would have been part of the festival if only the festival had happened, which it didn't because of the ban on large gatherings caused by the coronavirus? And in addition, what's the point of the #Cannes2020 hashtag that the festival has now bestowed on 56 feature films? Can it really help a film if its poster, advertising and social media bears the name of a festival that didn't happen? Well, yes. It probably can.
