Cape Breton Post - - Arts/Entertainment -

CANNES, France — The Cannes Film Fes­ti­val paused Tues­day for a mo­ment of si­lence to hon­our the vic­tims of the at­tack at the Ari­ana Grande con­cert in Manch­ester, Eng­land.

Thierry Fre­maux, di­rec­tor of the fes­ti­val, led Cannes in a minute of si­lence from the red-car­pet steps of the Palais, the fes­ti­val’s hub. The mo­ment, he said, was to show sol­i­dar­ity with the vic­tims, their fam­i­lies and the Bri­tish peo­ple.

“We are a fes­ti­val of peace,” said Fre­maux, who was joined by Pierre Les­cure, pres­i­dent of the fes­ti­val, ac­tress Is­abelle Hup­pert and fes­ti­val em­ploy­ees.
