Cannes Equals Film
The lovely thing about this souvenir from France is that it gives you a taste of class, which Cannes is well known for. Cannes is synonymous to film, and specifically to Cannes Film Festival. Every Autumn the international film community comes together to watch and admire the best films produced all over the world. It is a festival for a few, but a great few.
Everybody follows the films and specially the celebrities who attend he festival to promote the films they star. Surely, there is Hollywood that competes for the first place as the ultimate stage for filmmaking. But Cannes has a glamor that comes from its history when it had no competition.
Film and more About Film
During the Fifties, Sixties and Seventies was the place where Elizabeth Tauylor, Jean Luc Godard, Richard Burton, Sophia Loren, just to name a few had the only opportunity of coming together and the paparazzi of taking their photographs in an attempt to reveal their suggestive personalities and intriguing relationships.
Sometimes the verdicts are controversial, other times there is no doubt that a filmmaker is setting a new trend in international film. Surely, Cannes is the turning point for many emerging filmmakers. But Cannes hosts many other events that are not film. For example it is home to the International Acto's Performance Festival, the Lios International Advertising Festival. Other events worth mentioning include the Pan African Film Festival, which takes place in April, and the International Festival of Games. This travel souvenir will make a great addition to your French collection.
