Cannes Film Festival Reacts To The Terrorist Attack In Manchester

Effects of the Machester terrorist attack are felt at the Cannes film festival.

On the day of 70th anniversary of the Cannes Film Festival, the effects of the horrid violence in Manchester are widely felt across France. Terrorist attack in Manchester is yet another terrorist attack on culture, youth, joyfulness, freedom, generosity, and tolerance, all the values of those who are celebrating Cannes film festival.

While the royalties of the film industry were gathering just across the Ambassador Suites at the Palais for the group photo call, David Lisnard, the Mayor of Cannes made the following statement regarding the terrorist attack in Manchester:

An abject terrorist act has struck again last night in Manchester.My heartfelt thoughts go out to the victims’ families, deceased or injured. I extend Cannes and all of the residents of Cannes’ solidarity to all our bereaved British friends.We do give our complete support, both companionate and combative, to all British nationals, either living all year long in Cannes or visiting during the Film Festival. And everyone can be certain that our involvement is unprecedented and limitless against the terrorist risk and the evil religious fundamentalism.The Islamic terrorist threat is at the highest and we stay in permanent tension to prevent it and protect everyone from this menace, residents or festival participants.Our battle is first to protect everyone. But it is as well to defend our values. And we should not surrender on anything that makes who we are.

The Islamic terrorist threat is at the highest and we stay in permanent tension to prevent it and protect everyone from this menace, residents or festival participants.Our battle is first to protect everyone. But it is as well to defend our values. And we should not surrender on anything that makes who we are.”

In this spirit, the Cannes Festival continues to carry the universal message of culture, emanating openness, sharing, and emancipation.

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 pm.
