Attending the Cannes Festival is by invite only, so it truly is an exclusive collection of the world’s best talent from the film industry. This edition will be no different as actors, directors, producers and other professionals arrive on charter flights to Cannes to celebrate the next wave of must-see films on the shores of the French Riviera.
Whether you’re booking charter planes because you’ve been selected to attend the event, or you’re travelling there to soak up the star-studded atmosphere (and the sunshine) and catch free public screenings by the beach every night, it’s an enthralling time of year to visit this part of the world. Founded in 1946, the Cannes Festival is considered the most prestigious film festival in the world, and is held annually at the Palais des Festivals et des Congrès. It features a number of juried competitions, with awards in the following categories:
- Golden Palm for Best Film (Palme d’Or)
- Grand Prize of the Festival
- Jury Prize
- Best Short Film
- Best Actress
- Best Actor
- Best Director
The official selection of films for Cannes is announced on the festival website, usually around mid-April. The festival previews new films of all genres, including documentaries, from around the world. In particular, it has become an important event for promoting European-made films to a worldwide market.
