PARIS — A few weeks before the start of the Cannes Film Festival, French authorities have simulated a bloody attack on the showbiz gala, one of several such exercises in the wake of the March 22 attacks in Brussels.

French television station BFMTV showed four masked figures with automatic-style weapons storming the city’s famous Film Festival Palace, firing blanks before striding up the stairs.
