Cannes Film Festival 14th – 23rd May 2014
The Cannes International Film Festival is held annually in Cannes. Normally towards the end of May. Founded just after the war in 1946, the Cannes Film Festival previews films and documentaries of all types and is one of the most well known and popular film festivals in the world. The festival is held annually at the Palais des Festivals et des Congrès. Attendance is by invitation only.
The spirit of the Cannes Film Festival is to encourage the creative work of cinema across the world. And to foster the contribution of new and exciting writers and scene makers to the world of cinema.
This is usually the beginning of the Summer season as after Cannes people continue on to Monaco, Ibiza, St Tropez & Mykonnos to follow the sun and party.
