Filmmakers might strive for Hollywood fame, but for many of them their leap to success happens at the Cannes Film Festival in France, where for nearly two weeks the Côte d’Azur becomes a playground for celebrities and the paparazzi who stalk them, but more importantly for filmmakers – both up-and-coming and experienced – to make an out-of-the-box impression.

One talented filmmaker will walk away with the coveted Palme d’Or prize and, assumedly, the respect of their peers. A ritzy, increasingly competitive festival, where the scene is perhaps more important than the films being screened, it is one of the last of its kind.

While the main screenings are open to accredited film professionals, the nightly screenings at the open-air Cinéma de la Plage (Beach Cinema) show movies from the Official Selection, Out of Competition, and Cannes Classics’ sections of the festival. The city of Cannes offers a luxuriously appointed waterfront that conceals a more charming village worth exploring on foot during your visit.
