Cannes Film Festival 2020
Cannes 2020 turns into Marché du Film Online
The Cannes Film Festival has been a recurring highlight for movie enthusiasts for over 70 years. For a long time, the organizers hesitated on how to handle this year’s festival due to shutdowns and travel bans, but now the decision has been made: it will be a digital film festival in 2020. Marché du Film Online will take place from June 22nd to June 26th and consists of virtual booths and pavilions for movie agents and sellers, video meetings and online screenings. The director general of the festival, Thierry Frémaux, says: "We won't replace the Cannes experience with the Marché du Film Online, but we are recreating part of its essence online by offering professionals an efficient and cutting-edge platform to screen films, buy them, finance projects and meet partners".
At this time of year we usually showcase previous winners from the Cannes Festival, and this year, too, we have produced a selection of acclaimed films to enjoy while waiting for the winners of this year to be announced. Why not have your own film festival at home? Pick out a few movies, make popcorn and find your inner movie connoisseur!
