Actor Stellan Skarsgård and the director of the Cannes Film Festival Thierry Frémaux (in the background) at the prémiere of Last Words during the Cinema Ritrovato Festival in August 2020. The film was scheduled to be presented at Cannes before the festival was cancelled due to the COVID-19 pandemic.

The 73rd annual Cannes Film Festival was scheduled to take place from 12 to 23 May 2020.[2] On 13 January 2020, Spike Lee was named as the president of the Jury.[3] However, due to the COVID-19 pandemic in France, festival management announced on 14 April 2020 that the festival could not be held in its "original form", with alternative means of observing the festival being explored.[4] It was canceled for the first time since 1946 during World War II.

Earlier, festival management considered holding the festival in June or July,[5] after not cancelling the event.[6] In mid-March, the festival's main venue, the Grand Auditorium Louis Lumière, was converted into a temporary homeless shelter.[7] In May 2020, it was announced that no physical edition of the festival would take place,[8] but a revised Official Selection of films was confirmed on 3 June 2020.[9][10][11] Before announcing the list of films from the official selection, Thierry Frémaux the director of the Cannes Film Festival, said in an interview that he was talking with Spike Lee and also was hoping to have him as president of the jury on the 2021 edition. He also confirmed that Lee's film Da 5 Bloods was supposed to be the return of Netflix to the red carpet in the Out of Competition category.[12]

In September, organizers announced that a limited outdoor festival, featuring screenings of four official selection films, the short film competition and the Cinéfondation Selection would take place on the Croisette from 27 to 29 October.[13] The Semaine de la critique program also launched a free online screening of its short film selections in October.[14]

Official selection

The Official Selection has been divided in sub-categories, as directors or genres, not as competitors.[15][16][17]
