Eric von Hofen at the Cannes Film Festival
For over 60 years during the month of May, actors, film makers, directors, investors, and on lookers from around the world take over the French Riviera for the Cannes International Film Festival. I have been lucky enough to be invited to Cannes and think it is the best festival in the world. When you arrive at the airport in Nice, you know you just landed in a special place. The French put on a show like no others. Everything is first class and the access to the movers and shakers is top notch. Champagne flows on the yachts and the deals are made on the next big movie release. Which by the way, the yacht parties are where you want to be.

The rules are if you are attending one of the movies, small or short, you wear a tux period. This unwritten dress code just sets the stage and the feel of the event. Another point, if you are attending a movie showing and you don’t speak the language suck it up and watch it. Remember it’s an international festival. This brings you closer to the film makers and you just might learn something. I have meet people in the crowds from around the world and have stayed in touch with them. It’s pretty cool. Last point, take the time to fill out the grading card when the movie if over. Everyone involved in the production of it really wants to hear your comments.

This video shows you a quick look on the action taking place in Cannes. Enjoy.
