Cannes Film Festival Announces Official List Of 56 Films For 2020 Edition, Not A Single Indian Film Included

The Cannes Film Festival is undoubtedly one of the most prestigious and popular film festivals in the world of cinema. The festival that takes place around May every year, was canned owing to the Coronavirus Pandemic this year. As a result, several of our B-Town darlings like Aishwarya Rai, Sonam Kapoor, Deepika Padukone and others who usually graced the red carpet could not doll up this year.

However, there is a reason for filmmakers and fans of the Cannes Film Festival to rejoice. The festival has released its list of 56 films that will be able to carry the credit of the Cannes Film Festival to all other festivals that might happen in the remaining half of the year.
