The Cannes 2020 Film Selection

The Cannes 2020 Festival will be held. That is, no. That is, yes. But with a stamp.

There is something extraordinarily anomalous in the way in which entertainment institutions (and not only those) have quickly had to imagine a solution to deal with the covid-19 emergency. One solution was the original one of the Croisette event that this year, after having indomitable kept the point until the gates of May, stating by Thierry Fremaux’s voice that the Festival would be held, decided to transform the event into an official selection.

Not being able to set up red carpets, organize screenings and above all organize the award ceremony, wanting and having to avoid gatherings, the Festival decided to create a selection of films, applying a sort of “quality stamp” to give them support along the rest of the festival season.

Of the usually immense Sélection officielle, the basket has shrunk to fifty titles led by The French Dispatch by Wes Anderson, a film set in France with the usual hypertrophic cast, including the names of Timothée Chalamet and Bill Murray.

Important mention for the female presence of the selection, with 16 works shot by women (absolute record for the event), and also for the presence of an absolutely political film like that of Steve McQueen who has already declared that his work is dedicated to George Floyd.

Animation with works by Goro Miyazaki, Jonas Poher Rasmussen, Josep de Aurel and Pete Docter was also present.
