Event organizers behind the annual French film festival have eventually scrapped the May 12 to 23 dates after a week of speculation with a possibility of the dates being moved to June.
AceShowbiz -The Cannes Film Festival has officially been canned by the coronavirus.
After a week of speculation, event organisers have chosen to postpone the 2020 party and perhaps move it from May to June.
“Due to the health crisis and the development of the French and international situation, the Festival de Cannes will no longer be able to take place on the dates planned, from May 12 to 23,” a statement reads.
The news makes history as it was 70 years ago when Cannes Film Festival bosses last scrapped the event outright.
Cannes now joins SXSW, Glastonbury, Coachella, the Olivier Awards and the Billboard Music Awards among the major cultural events that have been cancelled or postponed due to the COVID-19 pandemic.
