AFM that is known as one of the most important film markets in the world sees any physical edition challenging.
The events hosts around 7000 professionals from at least 70 countries.
“By making this announcement four months in advance, AFM’s stakeholders can move forward and plan with certainty,” said Michael Ryan, Chairman.
Other world’s key events such as Cannes and Toronto also has been scheduled to be held online in 2020.
The 41st edition of AFM will be held November 9-13 that is a week later than planned. Rescheduling is done to prevent the market and the US Election Day clash.
