Cannes Film Festival

Cannes Film Festival French Coastline

We鈥檙e headed to Southern France for 12 days of star-studded extravagance

The world-renowned Festival de Cannes will take place from May 16 to May 27, featuring works from this year鈥檚 most promising artists in cinema. The Cannes Film Festival attracts the world鈥檚 attention as new directors, actors, and producers emerge from the cover of obscurity and seize the opportunity to propel their careers to new heights within the cinematic arts.

While the event is invite-only, there is plenty of reason to charter a private jet to the French Riviera in May. Our favorite part of Festival de Cannes is the pomp and fanfare surrounding the event that anyone with the means can enjoy.

Global Air Charters makes it easy to visit and enjoy Southern France in style. Contact our flight brokers, and we鈥檒l be happy to make all the arrangements for a seamless journey.

The French Riviera, a Legacy of Stars

Whether you鈥檙e a C么te d鈥橝zur (French Riviera) regular or a complete newbie, there is always something new to discover. We adore the authenticity and charm of Southern France at all times of the year. But the Festival de Cannes brings the entire C么te d鈥橝zur region to life.

Southern France is a known destination for celebrities of all disciplines and has developed its reputation accordingly. Movie stars, musicians and world-class athletes have long retreated to C么te d鈥橝zur for exclusive holidays. During the Festival de Cannes, a night out in the city comes with a high likelihood of bumping into movie stars and directors鈥攜ou never know who you might meet.

You are Clear to Land, Welcome to C么te d鈥橝zur

Southern France has few options for arrival into Cannes on a long-range jet like a Gulfstream V. The best option for those traveling to Cannes for the film festival this spring is the Nice/C么te d鈥橝zur Airport (LFMN).

For charter operators unfamiliar with the Nice airport (and how to navigate the busy periods), it can cost extra hours of unnecessary delays! Fortunately, we regularly fly in and out of this airport and have years of experience operating there during the peak travel season.

Nice is just a beautiful 30-minute drive away from Cannes. Transportation is easy to arrange from Nice if you plan to stay where the action is in Cannes. Whether you are booking travel through your broker or booking directly, we can help arrange executive ground transportation from Nice.

Where to Stay During the Cannes Film Festival

There are several extravagant hotels and resorts along the C么te d鈥橝zur. It is difficult, though not impossible, to find glamorous hotels near the city center as the festival draws near. For those looking for more solace, staying closer to Nice or Antibes are wonderful options while the festival is running.

Not to Miss

The Boulevard de la Croisette is a perfect first stop in Cannes. World-famous for shopping, dining, and sightseeing, it鈥檚 the most iconic boulevard in the region. If you enjoy luxury boutiques and searching for new, unique fashion pieces, here is your chance. La Croisette has plenty of charm and romance to keep you happily wandering for hours.

脦le Sainte-Marguerite is located just 15 minutes from the shore of Cannes. This haven provides visitors with some solitude and the opportunity to explore serene natural surroundings. Many visitors like to anchor their yachts and catamarans near the island to enjoy the peaceful turquoise waters and tranquil environment. The island is fun to experience by jet ski, or you can charter a boat. There will be numerous celebrities relaxing here during the Festival de Cannes, in case you were wondering.

For art lovers and just about anyone exploring Cannes during the film festival, Les Murs Peints, the painted walls and frescos scattered around town, are worth finding. The most notable of the installations, 鈥淐in茅ma Cannes,鈥 is located across the street from the H么tel de Ville in the downtown area.
