Certain behaviors have been singled out.

"Masks are the rule," the general delegate of the Cannes Film Festival Thierry Frémaux reminded festival-goers this Thursday, after the dissemination on social networks of photos showing some spectators not wearing them during screenings.

“We were called to order, therefore: the masks!

Masks are the rule, the law and the guarantee that the festival will go to the end, ”insisted Thierry Frémaux, a few minutes before the screening of a film in competition.

Of carelessness in the climbs of the stairs

A warning that comes after the dissemination on Twitter of pictures taken in rooms of the Palais des Festivals on which many festival-goers appeared without masks.

In addition, some liberties were also taken with the barrier gestures over the last two days, especially during the traditional climb of the stairs.

The Cannes Film Festival, which runs until July 17, takes place under strict sanitary conditions.

A health pass (very recent PCR test or vaccine) is required from festival-goers, but not for access to the two main screening rooms, the Soixantième room and the Cineum complex.

On several occasions, the general delegate called for vigilance, in particular because of the spread of the Delta variant.
