What is the Cannes Film Festival?

Cannes Film Festival 2022: what is - Santandrea Luxury Houses To present the Cannes Film Festival it is enough to mention its two symbols recognized all over the world: the red carpet and the Palme d'Or. The first covers the famous catwalk - the Montée des Marches - on which all the movie stars and VIPs who take part in the film festival parade are immortalized. The second is instead the prize that is awarded to the best movie of each edition and which often certifies the success of the movie worldwide. At the Palais des Festivals et des Congrès, every year, this film festival occupies the attention of the global press for two weeks and brings to the South of France, in Cannes, the most famous actors, including those coming from Hollywood, given the great media importance of the event. The Cannes Film Festival was born in 1939 with the aim of creating a French alternative to the Film Festival in Venice, where in these weeks is instead the scene of the 2022 Biennale, which we present in another article.

Apart from some editions skipped due to force majeure, the event has always been held regularly every year on the Côte d'Azur, always capturing great guests and a lot of public. By now the Cannes Film Festival represents one of the most impactful events both in terms of cinema and costume in the whole planet, thanks also to the prizes that the stars of world cinema are hunting for. In addition to the Palme d'Or for best movie, there is the Special Grand Prix for the creativity and level of innovation of a movie and various individual awards. In short, very little to envy about the US Oscar Ceremony.
