The 2023 Cannes Film Festival: the film event of the year not to be missed

The 2023 Cannes Film Festival is one of the most anticipated events of the year in the world of cinema. This year, the 76th edition will be held from May 16 to 27 and promises to dazzle us once again with a selection of quality films, grandiose ceremonies and an audience of movie stars. The Festival de Cannes' mission is to reveal and showcase quality works, promote the development of the film industry and celebrate the 7th art internationally. Our real estate agency Monaco describes it in detail !


A prestigious jury for a selection of quality films

As every year, the Cannes Festival brings together a jury of renowned professionals to award the most prestigious film awards. At the head of the jury of the 76th edition is the Swedish director Ruben Östlund, double Palme d'Or for The Square and Sans Filtre. He will be surrounded by great personalities of cinema such as the French director Julia Ducournau, Palme d'Or in 2021 with Titane, the American star Brie Larson, Oscar for Best Actress for Room and heroine of the blockbuster Captain Marvel, his compatriot Paul Dano (There Will Be Blood, The Batman) and French actor Denis Ménochet (Until the Guard, As Bestas).


The Cannes Film Festival, a major media event

For more than 75 years, the Cannes Film Festival has been the most publicized film event in the world after the Olympic Games. This year, it will welcome no less than 30,000 passionate professionals and 5,000 journalists.

The red carpet is one of the most emblematic symbols of the Cannes Film Festival. It is reserved for movie stars who climb the steps of the Palais des Festivals to attend screenings of selected films. The climb of the steps is a moment of pure glamour and elegance, where actors and actresses compete in more sumptuous outfits than each other. La Croisette, Cannes' famous promenade, is also the scene of exclusive events and evenings throughout the festival.


The 2023 Cannes Film Festival is an opportunity to discover world premiere films, carefully selected by the festival committee. The official selection includes films competing for the Palme d'Or, but also films out of competition, special screenings and films from the Directors' Fortnight, the Cinéfondation and the Critics' Week. The screenings take place mainly at the Palais des Festivals, but also in other cinemas in the city.


The 2023 Cannes Film Festival promises a program rich in cinematographic discoveries. The screenings will begin with the opening film Jeanne du Barry, followed by many other films such as Killers of the Flower Moon by Martin Scorsese, Indiana Jones 5 by James Mangold, as well as the short film Strange Way of Life by Pedro Almodovar with the participation of Ethan Hawke and Pedro Pascal. Film lovers will be able to look forward to the complete list of films in the official selection, which promises to be balanced and representative of the diversity of international cinematographic creation.


How to enjoy the 2023 Cannes Film Festival?

The Cannes Film Festival is also open to the general public for some screenings, but the majority of events are reserved for film professionals. For those who wish to enjoy the festival, it is possible to attend the screenings in preview in the cinemas of the city. Outdoor sessions are also very popular and allow you to discover films.


The 2023 Cannes Film Festival is one of the most prestigious events in the world of cinema and attracts celebrities from all over the world. This event is closely followed by the Monaco Grand Prix, a motor race that also attracts visitors from all over the world. Living on the French Riviera and in Monaco is a real privilege, offering an unparalleled quality of life, breathtaking natural beauty and incredible cultural richness.
