The festival authorities said they were continuing to prepare for the festival
The Cannes Film Festival has released a statement in response to the new measures taken by the French government that restricts gatherings of more than 100 people.
“The latest restriction comes from a plan (by the government) that we hope will start to bear results in April, and by then we will know if the events scheduled for May, at Cannes and elsewhere, will be maintained,” said a festival spokesperson.
“We are working hand in hand with the mayor of Cannes and the National Film Board (CNC) to make the festival happen and, if it does, in the best possible conditions,” added the spokesperson.
The festival authorities said they were continuing to prepare for the festival hoping the pandemic will be receding by the middle of May.
