The Cannes Film Festival said on Wednesday that it would postpone this year's edition to July from its regular mid-May due to the epidemic.
The festival is now scheduled for July 6 to July 17.
The star-studded annual event was cancelled altogether last year for the first time since the World War II, with only a small online presentation from its official selection in October 2020.
The Film Festival is normally held in mid-May for around 12 days in the south of France. The top award is the Palme d’Or or Golden Palm.
Along with the Berlin International Film Festival and the Venice Film Festival, The Cannes Film Festival is one of the top three film festivals in Europe.
