Meet the Stars at the Cannes Film Festival
May 16th - 27th, 2007
The Cannes Film Festival is the festival to beat when it comes to internationally acclaimed cinema, and of course, the perfect camera opportunity, since it's events like this one that give the paparazzi their quite singular reputation. Taking place in the third week of May each year in the hotspot port city of Cannes on the Riviera, the famous and fabulous arrive in droves to see, be seen and generally revel in the limelight.
Past winners, honorees, and attendees have included the likes of Roman Polanski, Catherine Deneuve, Johnny Depp, Bjork, Tommy Lee Jones and Gus Van Sant. Practically everyone else whose name is somewhat known has attended the festival, or at least strives to do so.
The center of the festival’s hectic activities is found in the heart of Cannes’ seafront area, The Palais du Festival. Aside from the screenings and mythic parties, the city’s legendary luxury hotels (of which there are many) become intimately involved in the hustle as well.
