We have been monitoring the situation closely, like everyone across the globe, and at this stage, IFF hasn't been cancelled or postponed, we are continuing to monitor the situation and come October if the situation is the same we will move the festival to an online live-streamed global event.
The health, safety, and wellbeing of everyone is our absolute priority and an online live-streamed event is the safest option if needed, more details on how that will be facilitated we be sent out by the 1st week of October 2020.
