22 March 2017


Each year in May, Cannes becomes the world capital of cinema and entertainment, as the film industry assembles for the Cannes Film Festival, the most glamorous event on the French Riviera. Cannes Film Festival conquers the city every year in mid-May, and lasts 2 weeks, during which the boulevard La Croisette is congested by people admiring and savouring this exquisite event. Most come to Cannes in hope to see movie stars and celebrities in their full splendour, walking up the red carpeted staircase of the Palais des Festivals et des Congres.

The bay of Cannes becomes, for the duration of the Cannes Film Festival yacht charters, the stage featuring the most gorgeous luxury Superyachts and Megayachts – most of them are rented for Cannes Film Festival yacht charters – spring corporate and private events boat rental.

The official program of the Cannes Film Festival runs non-stop in the most famous gala center on the French Riviera and possibly in whole France – the Palais des Festivals et des Congres. In here, films are showcased to the international industry in several movie theatres, the rights are sold, awards given by the Jury and attributed to the best cinema artwork or outstanding talents. Outside the Palais, the international movie industry transacts and business is often discussed and completed on board of luxury charter yachts, in the very secure yet elegant and private atmosphere of the ports and bay of Cannes.
