Cannes Film Festival
Cannes Film Festival means two weeks of glamour, cinema, and elegance. The best way to enjoy this fantastic event is by chartering a yacht for the festival and making the most of the vibrant social life on the Croisette. Staying on a luxury yacht during the Cannes Film Festival is an exclusive and memorable experience. The festival, second only to Venice’s Film Festival, is a wonderful occasion to enjoy the French Riviera, one of the most beautiful destinations of the Mediterranean.
Since the 1930s, Cannes Film Festival has attracted the international jet set, along with scores of film enthusiasts. Every year, glamorous stars and famous actors flock to the South of France to appear on the red carpet, along with movie magnates and producers, who come to the Festival to close new deals. Everything is magic during the festival, transforming Cannes into a French version of Venice: tenders carry the actors like Venetian gondolas to exclusive parties hosted on superyachts dispersed along Cannes’ old harbor.
The magic happens every year in May and lasts for two weeks: in this beautiful location on the French Riviera, not too far from exciting Saint Tropez, a huge number of actors and VIPs gather. One of the world’s most famous seafronts swarms with designers, movie critics, starlets and members of the jet set transforming Cannes into the world’s cultural hotspot for fifteen days.
Cannes Film Festival is divided in two sections: the Official Selection (that awards the Palme d’Or) and the Un Certain Regard aimed at emerging talents and authors. Lucky visitors might have the chance to attend the Cannes Classic program, the International Critics’ Week selection, and other non-competitive sections of the Festival. You will never forget the excitement of experiencing this event from the flybridge of your Cannes Film Festival charter yacht selected by Silver Star Yachting and docked just a few feet from the Croisette.
Yet, Cannes offers much more than just the festival. Tourists from all over the world go there to eat at one of the town’s many excellent restaurants specializing in local and international cuisine, to take a walk on the elegant Croisette and marvel at the yachts anchored at the harbor, or to stop at the Promenade de la Croisette with its prestigious boutiques selling luxury brands. A must for travelers is visiting the picturesque Suquet, Cannes’ old town. All this is easily accessible from the old harbor, where you can dock your yacht, and to which you can return any time to enjoy a romantic dinner onboard.
When the festival is over, simply choose a new destination in the Mediterranean, such as Corsica or Sardinia, leaving the lights of the old harbor behind, and embark on a new adventure on your luxury yacht with Silver Star Yachting.
