Following last year’s anniversary edition, the Cannes Film Festival has made a date change this year. Running from May 8th through May 19th, this year’s festival promises to bring new energy and prestige, including an additional gala. It will once again be a unique A-list festival with the majority of passes reserved for film industry professionals and the press. Accreditation, screenings, and entry to official venues is typically off-limits to the general public. Of course, there is still the free open-air screenings at the Cinéma de la Plage, but the real treat is getting an invitation. Invitations are required to attend screenings in the Grand Théâtre Lumière and at 8:30am in the Debussy Theatre, but remember they aren’t transferable and your acceptance implies agreement to be photographed and filmed. It is a black tie/evening dress only event for either of the 2 nightly gala screenings and withdrawing your acceptance means you’ll lose out of the magic and more invitations.

Start working those connections and friends if you want your invitation to the hottest parties this year. If you can’t secure an invite, each party could cost from $4,200 to $175,000 per person. If all else fails check out the VIP Access provided by Millionaire’s Concierge.
