If you’re visiting France or enjoying a long stay vacation in Cannes in May, the festival you won’t want to miss is the Cannes Film Festival.  This is the 68th annual event.

Every May since 1946, the 12 day Cannes Film Festival made the town of Cannes incredibly famous and busy.  Originally, the Festival was to be held in 1939 but the opening was delayed until after the war.

This year the Festival will run from May 13 to May 24th.  Some 35,000 international film professionals and over 4,000 international journalists attend the event.
