Festival de Cannes
The Festival de Cannes now welcomes over 30,000 accreditees spanning the entire spectrum of the film industry, as well as some 4000 international journalists, making it the biggest and most widely acclaimed film festival in the world.
The privileged venue of both film discoveries and encounters, the Festival de Cannes reflects the dual nature of the cinema: art and industry. For if the Festival evokes first and foremost the surprise of being selecting and the hope of winning a prize, it is equally the privileged rendezvous of all motion-picture industry professionals for whom the Marché du Film was first created at the Festival in 1959.
The Cannes Lions International Advertising Festival is the world's only truly global meeting place for those interested in creativity in communications. More than 9,000 registered delegates from 85 countries attended the Festival in 2007, where they could view nearly 26,000 pieces of work, attend 45 seminars and 20 workshops, catch four awards ceremonies, and enjoy two vast beach galas.
