PARIS (Reuters) - The Cannes Film Festival will not be held this year in “its original form” due to the coronavirus, organisers said on Tuesday.

The festival will nevertheless be made “real” in 2020, “in a way or another”, they added in a statement.

The film festival, one of the largest in the world, was initially due to take place from May 12-23.
