Cannes Film Festival
Held since 1946, the Cannes Film Festival is one of the most prestigious events in the film industry. Showcasing and awarding new films from around the world, it is held annually in May at the Palais des Festivals et des Congrès in the French Riviera town of Cannes. And reserved primarily for film industry professionals, you have to be someone to receive an invite. Cue: the lineup of Hollywood A-listers and some of the biggest names in international cinema.
