Steps to cinematic glory.

The Cannes International Film Festival is one of the most anticipated events on the film festival calendar. Every year, the opening ceremony launches the festivities.

It all starts with the eagerly awaited ascent of the 24 steps of red carpet. Dressed to the nines in evening wear, celebrities in the film world line up to attend the chic ceremony. Once the crowd is settled, the master of ceremonies introduces the jury of distinguished professionals who have been chosen to award the prizes to the winners.
Broadcast on television since 1993, this is the historic film festival that serious filmmakers dream of winning.
