The French resort of Cannes is finally buzzing after a horrible for the upcoming fests.
“We can’t wait,” said Pierrick Cizeron, chief executive at the Majestic hotel that overlooks the Mediterranean and the festival venue.
The world’s biggest film festival was cancelled last year due to this pandemic.
With France slowly emerging from a partial lockdown, the 2021 edition was delayed from the usual May date to July 6-17.
It is, however, still unclear how many stars will actually make the journey to Cannes, as France still requires non-EU arrivals to quarantine and there is no sign so far that the government will waive that requirement for the prestigious event.
If all goes according to plan, screening venues will be operating at full capacity, but a health pass or a negative PCR test may be required at the door.
