The Festival de Cannes should have been declared open on May 12th, but #covid19 decided otherwise; before the rendezvous in 2021, here is our dedication in the form of a tribute.
Festival de Cannes 2020: forced to cancel its 73rd edition due to the health crisis caused by the #coronavirus, the world’s largest film festival is setting a date in 2021. For more than 70 years, Cannes has been the melting pot of a unique and magical alchemy between culture and glamour, a grandiose symbiosis between films and the stars of the Red Carpet.
Tribute: pleasures experienced at Cannes 2019
To try to to escape this year’s current gloom, we invite you to relive the 2019 Cannes Film Festival through our daily columns published last year, mixing film reviews and numerous photos of international stars climbing the famous Red Carpet.

Marché du Film Online in june
While the films having had the privilege of being elected to the Official Selection will benefit from the Cannes 2020 label, the 73rd edition of the Cannes Film Festival, deprived of the Croisette because of Covid 19, will launch its Marché du Film Online on June 22, 2020 in support of film professionals.
Reserved for film industry professionals, the Marché du Film Online will allow sales companies to get in touch with buyers through virtual stands. They will be able to present their new films and current projects in an online space, the digital equivalent of their stand in Cannes. Institutions from all over the world will benefit from virtual pavilions to showcase their national cinematography. Film commissions and film locations will support their producers and organize meetings in a virtual space as they usually do on their pavilion in the International Village.
Thanks to the Marché du Film Online, completed or post-production films and project presentations will be scheduled at pre-established times in about fifteen virtual cinemas, in order to preserve market emulation and time for viewing and negotiation. Replays will be organized for buyers in different time zones. The platform will be based on Cinando’s technology and on strict security measures – DRM, individual watermarking, real-time management and monitoring of admissions to screenings (Cinando is the platform launched by the Marché du Film in 2003, which has become the first network to navigate the film industry: contacts, films, projects in development, screeners…)
Participants will be able to make appointments and organize meetings via the Match&Meet Film Market’s networking application, which now integrates video calls.
