The Cannes Film Festival is undeniably the star of the eventful calendar of Cannes. It has been held each year as from 1946 at the Palais des Festivals et des Congrès, so it’s not an overstatement to say that it has become a tradition. As compared to other film festivals in the world, the merits of the Cannes Film Festival come down to being able to maintain, to enforce and to award certain artistic standards in the filmmaking industry. This event is not expected only in the world of film industry, but also by the lay people happening to reside in Cannes or to visit the city in May, hoping to at least catch a glimpse of the many celebrities arriving in Cannes for the event. In 2010, the festival will take place between 12th and 23rd of May.
