PRESS RELEASE: UPDATE REGARDING
COVID-19 AND POSTPONED EVENTS
At this time of global health crisis, our thoughts go to the victims of the COVID-19 and we express our solidarity with all of those who are fighting the disease.
Dear members and friends of the UNOFEX, following the latest government advice on coronavirus (COVID-19) and the latest decision of the Festival de Cannes, we regret to announce that the UNOFEX Filmmaker Night & Gala during the Cannes Film Festival 2020 originally scheduled for 22 - 23 May respectively, will be postponed until later in the year.
Further events including private member events, screenings and networking events are also postponed until later in the year. We’re working with our partners to explore options for new dates and we hope to be in a position to confirm them in the coming weeks.
We are continually monitoring the situation to ensure we are prepared for the challenges we may face in the coming weeks and months. We are closely following the advice of the World Health Organisation, and Center for Disease Control, and the safety of our members, partners, guests and staff remains our top priority.
See you soon,
The UNOFEX Team and Committee
