56 films nominated for Cannes Film Festival

The management of the French Film Festival Cannes, the world’s largest film festival, has announced the nomination of 56 films for this year.

Surprisingly, the management has not yet made a clear announcement on whether or not to hold the Cannes Film Festival.

However, the management announced the festival to be held in a unique way for the first time and announced the list of nominated films.

The Cannes Film Festival is usually held in May each year and lasts for more than 2 weeks.

The festival was scheduled to take place between May 12 and 23 this year but was cancelled until June or July due to the coronavirus, but in April the administration clarified that the festival might not be held in June or July.

In April, the administration made it clear that it was not possible to hold a Cannes Film Festival, and that it might be limited or postponed until next year.

However, now the film festival management has made a surprising decision by announcing 56 films nominated for this year’s festival.

The Cannes Film Festival has nominated 16 female directors, including 15 new directors, and a total of 56 films have been nominated.

The Cannes Festival administration usually announces the nominations for films in April, but this time the nominations were announced at a press conference in June in a quietly empty cinema.

The administration stated that the 56 nominated films will be screened exclusively at film festivals and cinemas in different parts of the world under the banner of Cannes Film Festival.

The administration clarified that all the nominated films will be screened in various film festivals, events and cinema halls around the world, however, it did not say when the screening of these films will start and how many of these films will be screened.

This year’s Cannes Film Festival management received more than 2,000 films from around the world, of which 56 were nominated.

It is expected that all the films nominated by the Cannes administration will be screened at festivals and events in different countries by the end of this year or the first quarter of next year.
