Cannes Film Festival Cannes

14. - 25. May 2024 | International major film festival

Founded in 1946, the Cannes Film Festival ranks among the world's most significant film festivals and takes place every year in mid-May at the luxurious Palais des Festivals et des Congrès in Cannes, a renowned resort on the Côte d'Azur. The "Festival de Cannes" epitomizes international cinema and glamour. Located directly on the marina and below the picturesque old town, the Palais provides the perfect setting for this event..

The event is organized by the Association Française du Festival International du Film, an organization dedicated to promoting the art of filmmaking. During the twelve-day festival, new films of all genres, including feature films and documentaries from various countries, are showcased. A particular focus is on the competition for the Palme d'Or, the festival's most prestigious award.

The main themes of the festival include the presentation of new international films and the promotion of talent from the film industry. Additional highlights feature screenings of the opening and closing films, as well as various special events and thematic retrospectives. The presence of movie stars and other celebrities, especially on the red carpet, attracts thousands of accredited journalists and photographers each year.

The event plays a central role in the film industry by bringing together producers, directors, actors, and other film professionals from around the world.

The venue itself, the Palais des Festivals, symbolizes the festival. It is situated in a prime location with direct access to the sea and is easily accessible from the city and its airport. During the festival, the population of Cannes often triples and becomes the vibrant center of the global film industry.

Thus, the Cannes Film Festival remains a central meeting point for the film industry and a cultural highlight in Cannes, attracting global attention every year.

The Cannes Film Festival will take place on 12 days from Tuesday, 14. May to Saturday, 25. May 2024 in Cannes.
