The Festival de Cannes is a spectacular event that focuses on the film industry and contributes to the development of cinema.
Cannes is a stunning place to visit on a luxury yacht charter and the Cannes Film Festival offers a perfect opportunity to experience the town's allure, alongside the star-studded, red carpet action, from the comfort of a superyacht.
A long-standing tradition of the event is for visitors to charter a superyacht in the Old Port of Cannes, and host on-board parties, fine dining and corporate yacht charters to impress and entertain clients, contacts and friends.
Indeed, with the port and its glittering Jetee Edouard Albert located directly opposite the Palais des Festival – where the formal programme takes place – it’s a perfect position to soak up the glittering and glamorous atmosphere.
The festival has evolved over the years but it still seeks to preserve its core values: a love of cinema, the discovery of new talent, and uniting professionals and journalists from around the world.
Presided over by the President of the Jury, which changes each edition, a number of competitions take place with the highest prize, known as the Palme d'Or, awarded to the best film in show.
In 2017, the festival celebrated its 70th anniversary, but it continues to be one of the world’s most widely publicized events and certainly the most important date in the international film calendar in terms of worldwide impact.
