65th Cannes Film Festival May 2012 !!

The 65th annual Cannes Film Festival begins tomorrow and a host of celebrities have already arrived on the Cote d’Azur. If your invite got lost in the post, however, fear not as we here at Attika have found a few ways for you to enjoy the Film Festival on the cheap.

As exclusive as they come, the festival is strictly invite-only and many of the top hotels along the Croisette actually will not even allow access to those without passes. Despite this, there are free screenings held on Plage Mace and if you get there early enough you may be able to snag a beach chair to relax on whilst you enjoy the film. This year is seeing a James Bond theme to the beach screenings, beginning with Dr No on Thursday!

If you’re more fashionista than film-buff, red carpet action commences usually at 7pm and then again at 10 and anybody is welcome to come along to jealously watch the celebrities show off the latest couture.

Cannes Film Festival

If leaving the house seems too much for you, or you’d prefer to relax in the sunshine, you can listen to commentary on the celebrity fashion dos and don’ts nightly on Riviera radio. Equally you can make a visit to http://www.festival-cannes.fr/en.html for all the lowdown.Our favourite is the feature ’64 years in pictures’ which follows the festival from its roots in the old Palais in 1946 to the current day.

Here you can take a trip back in time and see rare photos of famous stars such as Grace Kelly and Serge Gainsburg and Jane Birkin.May is a superb month on the Cote d’Azur because so sooner is the film festival over than the glamour of the Grand Prix is upon us!Property owners here will be renting out their apartments non stop in May as the major hotels have been booked up months in advance. Make the most of your French Riviera Investment and get it on the books of the best rental agencies on the Coast.
