Because the world has been hit by a heavy disaster by which part of Europe finds itself in a state of warfare, the Pageant de Cannes needs to increase all its help to the individuals of Ukraine and all those that are in its territory.


Nonetheless modest as it’s, we be part of our voices with those that oppose this unacceptable state of affairs and denounce the angle of Russia and its leaders.


Our ideas exit particularly to the Ukrainian artists and movie trade professionals, in addition to their households whose lives at the moment are at risk. There are these whom we’ve by no means met, and people whom we’ve come to know and welcomed to Cannes, who got here with works that say a lot about Ukraine’s historical past and the current.


Throughout this winter of 2022, the Pageant de Cannes and the Marché du Movie have entered their preparation part. Except the warfare of assault ends in circumstances that may fulfill the Ukrainian individuals, it has been determined that we’ll not welcome official Russian delegations nor settle for the presence of anybody linked to the Russian authorities.


Nonetheless, we wish to salute the braveness of all these in Russia who’ve taken dangers to protest in opposition to the assault and invasion of Ukraine. Amongst them are artists and movie professionals who’ve by no means ceased to battle in opposition to the modern regime, who can’t be related to these insufferable actions, and people who are bombing Ukraine.


Loyal to its historical past that began in 1939 in resistance to the fascist and Nazi dictatorship, the Pageant de Cannes will at all times serve artists and trade professionals that elevate their voices to denounce violence, repression, and injustices, for the primary objective to defend peace and liberty.
