The Cannes Film Festival, delayed from May to July, will finally begin on Tuesday at the French Riviera for its 74th and maybe the most critical edition.
Information & Broadcasting Minister Prakash Javadekar will inaugurate the virtual ‘India Pavilion at Cannes Film Market, 2021’ today.
The English-language work, Annette, will open the Cannes Film Festival. Apart from Annette, this year’s lineup will have 24 titles competing for the Palm dÓr and 12 in A Certain Regard. A new category, Cannes Premiere, will include seven movies.
The re-emergence of Cannes will plug a vital gap in the film industry ecosystem, which has been left in tatters by the pandemic.
The world’s most prestigious film festival will conclude on July 17th.
