Every May, the Cannes Film Festival takes over the city and the international press.
Professionals from the film industry, international stars and budding talent mingle with media-mad fans for a range of
surprising encounters and events.
Glitz, glamour, starlets, photographers and journalists all flock to the Cannes Festival over the course of a fortnight.
Major events and personal anecdotes are elevated to a whole new level as history is made here on the Riviera.
THE ULTIMATE INTERNATIONAL FILM EVENT
Once more this year, a plethora of celebrities are expected to grace the red carpet.
You may be lucky enough to run into one of the many stars on the Croisette outside the luxury hotels!
The famous stairs leading up to the Palais des Festivals attract thousands of fans and tourists every day.
Parties, concerts and TV shows turn Cannes into a 15-day flurry of activity for the actors and
journalists who arrive in their masses to cover the events and enjoy previews of nominated films - and in particular the film that will be awarded the Palme d'Or.
