Cannes Film Festival 2021
This year, the Cannes Film Festival will take place from July 6 to July 17, 2021, instead of May as is usually the case.
Nonetheless, due to the current pandemic, a question arises: will the stars parade the red carpet despite the restrictions?
Anyway, for this prestigious ceremony of the 7th art, the African-American filmmaker Spike Lee has agreed to chair the jury. This role had already been offered to him in 2020, but the event had finally been canceled.
As for actress Jodie Foster, she will be the special guest of the opening ceremony on July 6 and will receive an honorary Palme d’Or.
