We visited the site of the Cannes film festival during our visit due to my love of the film industry. The building itself is greatly impressive but more so are all the hand prints in the surrounding area. Check out Sylvester Stallone's hands they are huge!

This place has a glamorous reputation, being the venue of the Cannes Film Festival. As a conference centre it is at most average, though. Signage is poor and orientation difficult. The view of the sea is great, though. Well, at least an additional benefit you don't often get. The seating in the cinema-like lecture halls is great and the conference... More

Attended a large conference so clearly different experience than going there for a performance or the Music Festival. Decent place, but be careful when you are taller than the average Frenchman (>170cm?) as your legs will hardly fit and will cramp up when you have to sit there for a few hours...

My friend took lovely pictures of me on the famous red carpet staits (although there was no red carpet). I think it would make more sense to visit it if there was an actual event.

The building is well-known as a main site of the Cannes Film Festival. It was built in the 1979, designed by architects Hubert Bennett and Francois Druet, at the location of the old casino near the old port and at the end of the Croisette. It is a nice place to take some photos and have a great fun.
