Happy to meet again after last year's edition without a red carpet and prize list, The 74th Festival de Cannes has become the most anticipated film event this year. For good reason, the seventh international artistic event did not take place last year due to the health crisis which silenced culture for several months.
With optimism, the Film Festival is pleased to announce its comeback from July 6 to 17, 2021 at the Palais des Festivals, which will bring together thousands of film professionals from around the world.
If the deconfinement continues as the government has planned, no gauge should be imposed in the rooms, but the presentation of a health pass.
This year, the Feature Films in Competition Jury will be chaired by (Spike Lee). The mistress of ceremonies is actress Doria Tillier.
The Film Festival should show and exhibit high quality works to serve the development of cinema, promote the development of the global film industry and celebrate the seventh art internationally.
74 years of film discovery,
12 days of world premiere screenings,
More than 170 countries are represented each year,
