Premiers Plans adapting to January theatre closures

Premiers Plans had planned to run the Festival from 25 to 31 January in three cinema theatres, Pathé and the 400 Coups in Angers for the Official Competition, and the Forum des Images in Paris for the tribute to Chantal Akerman. The latest postponement of the opening of cultural establishments means that it will not be possible to welcome audiences to the big screens in cinemas for this first period of the Festival.
