Cannes Film Festival Yacht Charter

Cannes, France

12 - 23 May 2020

By Editorial Team

The annual Cannes Film Festival, also known as Festival de Cannes, never fails to capture the world's attention as some of the most famous faces on the planet and a spectacular fleet of superyachts gather for 11 days every May for a glitzy celebration of cinema.

Cannes is always a stunning place to visit on a luxury yacht charter but, during the Cannes Film Festival, the port town's glamour revs up a gear as the most sought-after movie stars and directors, as well as a wealth of models, musicians and other celebrities, arrive for film premieres, red carpet action and glittering parties. 

Crucial to the festival's sparkling allure is the fleet of luxury yachts lined up in and around Cannes. This makes the star-studded event an ideal platform for a superyacht charter, which will act as a private and glamorous setting for hosting parties, fine dining functions, live entertainment and meetings on board.

There is certainly no better way to impress and entertain clients, contacts and friends than from a luxurious superyacht based in the opulent surrounds of the South of France.

The formal programme of film premieres takes place at the Palais des Festival, which is located directly opposite the bustling Old Port. Charterers who want to be near all the action should secure a berth in the marina, with prime spots available along the Jetee Edouard Albert.

But, those looking for more privacy, should consider berthing away from the hustle and bustle in nearby Port Pierre Canto. For the utmost seclusion, however, anchor off the coast and come ashore by tender.

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, and, every year, a new jury of judges are charged with awarding a series of accolades, including the iconic Palme d'Or.

In 2017, the festival celebrated its 70th anniversary, but the star-studded meet continues to be one of the world’s most widely publicised events and certainly the most important date in the international film calendar in terms of worldwide impact.

As competition for a berth during the festival is fierce, it's recommended you book early. For more information on planning a Cannes Film Festival yacht charter, speak to your preferred charter broker.
