Cannes Film Festival Guide

The full rundown on attending the Cannes Film Festival

Attending Cannes will be one of the most rewarding things you do for your film industry career. But at the same time it can be a somewhat daunting experience. Not only do you have to stay on top of 12 days of hardcore film business, you must also cope with the fact that the event takes place in a country where they don't speak English, and in a city that isn't the largest nor the cheapest place to stay on the Riviera.

So where do you start? How do you get to the festival? And where do you find that essential information that will make your visit fun, successful, and most importantly, stress free?
