Cannes Film Festival teams up with San Sebastián for multi-film event

Seventeen films from the Official Selection of the Festival de Cannes 2020 will be presented

After joining Deauville, the Festival de Cannes is continuing to show the films from its Official Selection that were not able to be shown on La Croisette. This time, Cannes will be teaming up with the San Sebastián International Film Festival, with a unique and exceptional collaboration.

During the opening evening, José Luis Rebordinos, Director of the San Sebastián Festival, will pay special tribute to the Festival de Cannes. Thierry Frémaux, its General Delegate, will join Rebordinos in San Sebastián. Seventeen films from the Official Selection of the Festival de Cannes 2020 will be presented in different sections including, as part of an unprecedented joint decision, films in competition.

Through its presence in San Sebastián, the Festival de Cannes aims to support the writers, artists and films from all over the world that make up its 2020 Selection.

Pierre Lescure, President of the Festival de Cannes, explains further: “Every year, the International Film Festival of San Sebastián is one of the best events in September, with an extraordinary audience and incredible artistic talent to be found in all the cinemas of the city. We are delighted to be associated with the event and would like to thank José Luis Rebordinos’ teams for the support they have given to the films in the Official Selection 2020.”
