The French Riviera and Monaco has a calendar full of events and festivals throughout the year, including globally well-known events such as the Monte-Carlo Formula One Grand Prix, Cannes Film Festival, and Monaco Yacht Show. Here is a list of some of the major events the Côte d’Azur has to offer for 2018.
The Festival de Cannes is a glorious and spectacular event that focuses on the film industry and contributes to the development of cinema.
Cannes is a stunning place to visit on a yacht charter and the Festival de Cannes offers a perfect opportunity to soak up the star-studded, red carpet action from the comfort of a luxury yacht. A long-standing tradition of the event is for visitors to charter a yacht in the Old Port of Cannes, and host on-board parties to impress and entertain clients and friends.
Indeed, with the port and its glittering Jetee Edouard Albert located directly opposite the Palais des Festival – where the formal programme takes place – it is the perfect position to join in the glittering action. The festival has evolved over the years since it's creation but it still seeks to preserve its core values: a love of cinema, the discovery of new talent, and uniting professionals and journalists from around the world.
The 71st Festival de Cannes will take place from Tuesday, 8th May to Saturday, 19th May 2018. It will start one day earlier than in previous years, but will run for exactly the same length of time.
