Un Festival Lumière eccezionale che unisce passato e presente

Questo articolo è disponibile in inglese.

Exceptional circumstances call for an exceptional programme. With the very particular situation of the health crisis, and the recent changes in France limiting capacity in the biggest screens of the event, the Festival Lumière headed by Thierry Frémaux will offer an unusual 12th edition from 10 to 18 October. The biggest event in the world dedicated to heritage cinema will this year also look to the present: among the close to 150 films in the line-up, 23 features from the Cannes 2020 Official Selection will be playing.
