Cannes Film Festival to Hold Moment of Silence for Manchester Victims

The Cannes Film Festival has denounced the bombing that killed 22 people at an Ariana Grande concert on Monday night in Manchester, England.

The 70th edition of the fest will hold a moment of silence for the victims on Tuesday at 3 p.m. Cannes time.

“The Festival de Cannes would like to express its horror, anger and immense sadness following the attack on the public and the city of Manchester last night,” the festival said in a statement.

“This is yet another attack on culture, youth and joyfulness, on our freedom, generosity and tolerance, all things that the Festival and those who make it possible –the artists, professionals and spectators– hold dear. The Festival de Cannes invites all festival-goers to show their solidarity with the victims, their families and the British people by observing a minute’s silence this Tuesday 23 May at 3 p.m.”

Also at the festival, Disney and Pixar have cancelled a promotional event that was scheduled for Tuesday afternoon at the Carlton Hotel.

This year’s festival has unfolded with an unprecedented level of security, as France remains under a state of high alert due to terrorist attacks.
