Film festival advice

by Germandawg

My wife and I are planning a trip to Cannes / Antibes for the last weekend of the film festival this year (2009). We will be driving and are considering staying at the Stars Antibes Hotel. I have several questions if anyone is interested in helping.

1. How much will it cost to use public transportation to get from ANtibes to the festival area in Cannes?

2. Would it be possible to drive into Cannes and park?

3. Any advice on star spotting spots in Cannes would be greatly appreciated!

4. Any Advice about the festival or the area would be greatly appreciated. Especially info on eating and avoiding being robbed by high festival prices!

5. I also found a cheap hotel near the airport in Cannes. Would this be a better location?

We will be driving from Bavaria, Germany on Friday 22 and returning to Germany on Tuesday the 26th. Again any help would be greatly appreciated.

You may want to look into a train for travels to and from Cannes from Baveria.

It is a drive. You could travel at night on the train and save a day each way of travel not to mention the toll roads in France.

Re: Film festival advice

It is possible to drive but parking is very limited and many streets are blocked to traffic due to the crowds. "Star spotting" is everywhere and usually where you least expect. The restaurants along the coast are normally crowed and surprisingly many mingle. Jessica Alba came in to one and was seated right next to one of my travel companions.

The suggestion of taking the train is a good one. It is convenient but does limit your local travel some what.

Re: Film festival advice

It's possible to bump into stars almost anywhere in Cannes during the Film Festival. However I suggest you head for the Palace of Festivals first (on the sea front - an ugly concrete building known locally as 'the bunker') to check out events during your stay.
Stars regularly visit the Palace, especially during evening time. There's a red carpet at the front of the building and you can watch the famous few turn up in a limo, pose and generally strut their stuff, before they attend a film premier or ceremony. Don't worry about getting a good view as there's usually live tv coverage playing on large video screens next to the Palace entrance. Once you get bored with this, have a walk along the sea front (known as the Croisette) as there will be plenty to see. You can watch films on the beach, shop for pictures of the stars, or try and gate crash a party!

Travel Tips for Cannes

Hand prints of famous people outside Film Festival

by rachel_sun

Here are the handprints of film stars outside the Film Festival building.There were loads of them and loads of people gathered around taking pics and also seeing if their hand would fit in their fav stars hand print. The pic here is of Chuck Norris's hand.He had small hands as my hands were bigger.

La montée des marches

by laetitiad

A must during the festival !!! "La montée des marches" to see your favorite stars enter the palais des festivals. If you want to make the better of it, try to be there in the afternoon instead of the evening : they climb the stairs 2 or 3 times a day, and there are less spectators in the afternoon, so you should have a better view!!!

le Palais des Festivals

by MM212

The gigantic peach-coloured Palais des Festivals on esplanade Georges Pompidou was inaugurated in 1983. It was built as the new home of the world famous Cannes Film Festival and an exhibition hall for other events. It also houses a casino (Jimmy'z) and the Cannes tourist office. Since its inauguration, the structure has welcomed the glamorous world of cinema which walks up its steps on "le tapis rouge" (red carpet) every month of May. On the grounds surrounding the Palais are handprints of many famous European and American actors, a homage to the Festival.

Prior to 1983, the Film Festival was held at the old Palais des Festivals which dated from the 1940s and was located in the centre of la Croisette. Sadly, in a highly controversial move, the old Palais was destroyed only to be replaced with the hideous-looking Palais Stéphanie (formerly, the Noga Hilton Hotel). Many had advocated the preservation of the old Palais des Festivals as a museum and monument to the movie stars who attended it, but such move did not succeed. Rumour has it, bribes were involved...

I've Always Wanted To Be A Star

by jakiline

"The town I loved so well"

There I spent a beautiful schoolyear in my 18s, dreaming of singing, dancing and acting...
There I passed my driving licence: in the traffic jams on La Croisette at rush hours
There I met a Russian family from Kiev: that's why i can read and write and speak and sing a little Russian
There I sang (opera choir) at the Casino des Fleurs, which is on the pic, but doesn't exist anymore
There I enjoyed bathing in warm waters

"lovely secret shores"

We used to sail to the Isles of LERINS : we could go for walks and have picnic lunches, and "farniente" (simply doing nothing but enjoying the place and the sun)
Bathing was not always a good idea: too many jellyfishes

Now the monastery is still there and they are stricter about the environment, I guess.

"Have you heard of "the Man in the Iron Mask"?"

this island used to be known as a prison:
In the fortress built in 1635, it is told that "the Man in the Iron Mask" was jailed here...
