In Cannes, cinema is synonymous with the Festival, the red carpet, the stars and the Palme d’Or.
But this annual event alone does not sum up the synergy between the city and the 7th Art. Cannes feeds on this magic and makes us live it every day. The cinema expresses itself all year round, whether in the street with its painted walls and star prints, on the open-air beach or in an avant-garde cineum at the cutting edge of technology.

beats for its Festival
Cannes and the Festival is a great love story that has lasted for over 75 years. Celebrated every year in May, this major event brings together all lovers of the 7th art and creates excitement around its coveted Palme d’Or. Cannes is then decked out in its finest finery and the whole world has eyes only for it.
It must be said that the Palais des Festivals, the Croisette and its palaces facing the Mediterranean are the perfect setting! And what if it was not all a coincidence?
Discover all the history of the Festival, its secrets and its good tips to enjoy it.
