Cannes 2020 Announces Line-Up of 56 Films That Would've Premiered

Cannes 2020

There is no Cannes Film Festival this year, but there are Cannes Film Festival films this year. Pierre Lescure and Thierry Frémaux from Cannes officially announced a selection of 56 films that would've been in the main line-up at the 2020 festival. It's still hard to figure out what the point of this is, but they've been saying it's to bring attention to these films and allow them to exist with the "official Cannes selection" designation. "Comprising fifty-six films to be accompanied by the Festival for their release in cinemas and screenings at certain festivals." The 56 films are listed in brand new, very basic categories including "The Faithful" (or at least selected once before), "The Newcomers" (first time at Cannes), finally "The First Features", along with some documentaries and comedies. Truffle Hunters from Sundance is listed, and Peninsula, the Korean zombie horror Train to Busan sequel, plus Wes Anderson's The French Dispatch and also Pixar's Soul.

My Cannes 2020 At-Home Experience: Catching Up with Terrific Films

Cannes At-Home

Even without Cannes this year, we Cannes still have our own festival anyway. Even without film festivals, we can still experience the excitement of cinema watching films at home. The 2020 Cannes Film Festival was supposed to take place from May 12th to May 23rd, and this would've been my 11th year attending. But the festival has "postponed", although it seems like it's cancelled for 2020, due to the coronavirus pandemic. They decided not to host a virtual festival and instead are considering some kind of online offering and/or a partnership with another festival in the fall. So what else is there to do during these 11 days in May? Watch more films anyway! I wouldn't want to be anywhere else besides in Cannes anyway, so in the spirit of the festival, I decided to host my own version at home and watched 15 extraordinary films over the last 11 days.
