Cannes Film Festival

Cannes Film Festival (Cannes) – every May, usually a week or two before the Monaco Grand Prix, this event is organized to promote recently-made French, Hollywood and international films. Because of the prestige accorded to those whose films are shown here, various Hollywood actors attend this event. Paparazzi flock to this event to take photos of some of the high-profile arrivals. VIP parties held for these and other attendees are often held at major seaside hotels such as the Carlton. Unfortunately for those outside the film industry, that event is invitation-only. This, while a lucky few are able to attend the parties held around that event in Cannes.
