One of the most prestigious film festivals opened this Tuesday, October 27 after its postponement in May. Cannes is resisting the crisis and opens its doors to present 4 feature films this year with a very small audience and without crowds around its red carpet. In this version, the public will replace the press. Instead of receiving multiple journalists, who always formed a crowd, the festival opened its doors to the public, who could attend for free just by making a reservation online and complying with the biosafety protocol.
