The people of Annecy, France, and farther afield, have all been shaken to the core by yesterday's tragic events.

In consultation with the authorities and as specified by Mayor François Astorg, the Festival will be opening on Sunday 11th June.

However, as a gesture of support to the families and victims, the Festival management and team have decided to postpone the open-air screenings until Monday 12th June.

The Festival screenings will reflect the values that they have always endorsed: sharing, solidarity and fraternity.
