Cannes Film Festival 2021 postponed due to COVID-19


The 2021 edition of the Cannes Film Festival will be postponed until July because of the coronavirus pandemic, organizers said on Wednesday.

Last year’s event was canceled and replaced by a low-key event in October showcasing short films but without the A-list movie stars, directors and producers.

The festival will take place from July 6-17, the organizers said in a statement, two months later than planned.

Hollywood superstars normally flock to the Mediterranean town’s ‘Croisette’ promenade for the two-week extravaganza, the world’s biggest cinema showcase and a major market for the industry.

The palm-fringed town has been a subdued version of its normally glamorous self since the coronavirus outbreak. Many of its swankiest hotels are closed, as are its restaurants and bars.
