Cannes - Off the Red Carpet

So you’re attending the 2012 Cannes Film Festival, but what else is interesting off the red carpet? While Cannes is mainly appraised for its highly esteemed film festival, there is much more to be discovered in this trendy and posh French town. As an attendee of the Festival, it is very likely you will take stroll along the famous Boulevard de la Croisette. This street stretches 2 kilometres along the shoreline of the Mediterranean Sea, and is filled with many prestigious sh...

Short-film auteurs dream big at Cannes

It reportedly costs 95 euros ($135) for a short film to be considered for Cannes (AFP/File, Anne-Christine Poujoulat) By Robert MacPherson (AFP) CANNES, France — Jordan Bayne came to Cannes looking for distribution for her dramatic short "The Sea is All I Know", if not to catch a movie or two. Soon she realised that, for an independent film-maker, the real value of turning up at the world's biggest film festival lies in the networking possibilities -- and...

Rain on the Red Carpet

The weather in Cannes this year has been unpredictable at best.  "I've never had to use my umbrella so many times at the festival," a frequent Cannes attendee said esterday, as it drizzled all through the afternoon.  That didn't stop people from crowding around the red carpet to see people ascend for the 4:00 PM screening of Er Shi Si Cheng Ji (24 City), a film by Jia Zhangke. By yesterday evening, the skies had cleared, and today it's back to sun as usual h...

Bienvenue à Cannes

It's that time of year again... After huge storms and surfable waves in the Mediterranean last week, the opening of the Cannes International Film Festival yesterday looked like it would be blessed with sun... until the skies opened on the red carpet premiere of Ridley Scott's Robin Hood, out of competition. Today, however, the sunny blue skies of the Côte d'Azur seem to have returned; the beaches are beginning to be populated with beautiful people, and throngs are crow...

Film festival transforms Cannes' atmosphere

    By the looks of the storm-wrecked beaches days before, it would have seemed impossible for Cannes to transform into the miniature Hollywood it has become this week. Just days before the festival kicked off, the city was hit with Hawaii-sized waves and beach-ravaging winds. The coastline, speckled with restaurants and watersport rental agencies, was severely damaged. Entrepreneurs acted quickly to repair their destroyed properties, and for the first time there was a feeling of stress...

Mariam Arthur en route to Cannes day 7, final stop!

I'm walking through a park full of people with backpacks and rock-climbing gear. Who are these people? I've been looking for someone for 2 years to climb with in Cambodia... BZZZZZ. 7am and it's time to wake up. This is the day I go to Cannes. I officially started working in film in 1999. I've attended the American Film Market since 2000. Cannes is the Big Daddy of festivals and markets. Now it's my turn. And I'm representing Cambodia; how cool is that! Uli walks me to the Metro stat...

Accreditation to the Cannes Film Festival

I run a comprehensive and personal internet guide for English-speaking residents and visitors to the French Riviera and Provence called AMB Cote d'Azur. This year we would like to cover the Cannes Film Festival on a daily basis with both video and articles for the website. I have already emailed the Pressonline people at and await their response.

Glamorous Cannes

Glamour is the “exciting and often illusory and romantic attractiveness” but an alternate definition is the small city on the French Rivera that becomes a satellite of Hollywood annually for two weeks in May.            By legend and experiences of many who flock here, the Festival de Cannes is the most elegant film festival in the world. The tradition of lavish everything- film stars, cars, food, shops, nightlife and hotels, brings individuals from all walks of life here annually...
