WHY YOU SHOULD GO

If you have the budget, you should go. This is a FABULOUS place to mingle with yoru peers in a relaxed atmosphere. It can be as official or as casual as you want with back to back meetings or with a relaxed approach with lunches and dinners on the beach front.  

 

TIPS

Unless you are judge or you have been nominated for an award, you don't need to book an official Cannes Delegate Pass to attend the Festival. We recommend booking your accomdation and flights early and RSVP'ing to AS MANY parties, events as possible. Best to have too many ptoins rather than not enough. Get yourself on the list for all the BEACH DAY events. The best TIP is to register for the Google Beach during the week. This pass will GUARANTEE you entry to the BEST DAY/NIGHT beach party at the end of the week - Google/YouTube Pride Party  - it's AMAZING, and although you have to wait in line, it's worth it.

Two last words - Carlton Terrace

 

WHERE TO STAY 

The Old Town is a GEM. It's a little walk from the Palais but it's such a treat to be able to escape the craziness (and noise) of La Croisette . There are hotel options (Raddison) and also MANY airbnbs to choose from. The 'Main' hotels are also worth a look if you have the budget - Martinez, Majestic and Carlton.
