I&B minister to virtually inaugurate ‘India Pavilion at Cannes Film Market, 2021

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.
