Cannes Film Festival Airport Transfers

The Cannes International Film Festival, held annually in May on the French Riviera, attracts the glitterati for its parties as much as for its screenings. Directors, producers and agents work the crowds in pursuit of lucrative movie deals. Cannes winners often emerge as the year's most talked-about films.

Ever since its creation, the Festival de Cannes has remained faithful to its founding purpose: to draw attention to and raise the profile of films with the aim of contributing towards the development of cinema, boosting the film industry worldwide and celebrating cinema at an international level.

Cannes Film Festival Airport Transfer

The Cannes International Film Festival was created on the initiative of Jean Zay, Minister for Education and Fine Arts, who was keen to establish an international cultural event in France to rival the Venice Film Festival.

The first edition of the Cannes Festival was originally set to be held in Cannes in 1939 under the presidency of Louis Lumière. However, it was not until over a year after the war ended that it finally took place, on 20 September 1946. It was subsequently held every September – except in 1948 and 1950 – and then every May from 1952 onwards.

While early editions of the Cannes Film Festival were primarily a social event from which almost all of the films went away with an award, the appearance of stars from around the world on the Festival’s red carpet and increasing media coverage quickly earned it a legendary international reputation.
