Never heard of it?

This year’s annual film festival takes place from May 14th to May 25th and is featuring films from all around the world.

Every year, Cannes holds the most important film festival. The festival’s main goals are to maintain the development of the cinema around the world and to celebrate the cinema at an international level.

The most eagerly-awaited part of the festival is of course the famous red carpet and “montée des marches”.  The tradition is to scrutinize every celeb's outfit style and hair & makeup choice.
