Cannes Film Festival Guide

The full rundown on attending the Cannes Film Festival

Attending Cannes for the first time will be one of the most rewarding things you do for your film industry career. But it can also be a somewhat daunting and chaotic experience. Not only do you need to stay on top of 12 days of hardcore film business, you must also cope with the fact that it all takes place in a country which doesn’t speak English, and in a city that's neither one of the largest nor cheapest places to stay.

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?
