The prestigious Cannes Film Festival is set to get more attention than ever in 2017. It celebrates its 70th birthday and it’s sure to be the most glamorous gathering on the Riviera this spring with A-listers mingling along its famous Croisette. However, the Cannes Film Festival is not just limited to movie moguls and Hollywood’s elite. Anyone in the area can enjoy the refined atmosphere and partake in the celebrations, particularly if they plan in advance and charter a luxury yacht.
The Cannes Film Festival will run from the 17th to 28th May 2017 and its milestone 70th edition is bound to include a few unique surprises and celebrations. This year, watch the celebrities walk the red carpet at the prestigious event with a film festival yacht charter. Berth your yacht next to the Palais des Festivals for a week of advance screenings, cocktail parties and award ceremonies. The people-watching will be just as interesting as the movies and probably more star-studded. The superyachts that line the harbour have always been an essential component of the Cannes Film Festival experience. The Old Port is full of luxury yachts which offer easy access to La Croisette, the red carpet of the Palais des Festivals and all the main events.
Day and night, the yachts are full of key players in the film industry making power deals. They host private screenings of films in production and hold meetings while actors and directors give interviews to journalists. At night, the yachts continue to be the centre of attention as they are transformed into prestigious venues for exclusive dinners and cocktail parties. Those lucky enough to have chartered a yacht that is berthed in the harbour can socialise until the small hours in total comfort and relaxation. Many corporate yacht charters also fill the Bay of Cannes as businessmen seek to impress new clients or make high-powered deals in an unforgettable setting.
The beautiful M/Y OCTAVIA is an ideal choice for a Cannes yacht charter. Built by the shipyard Sunseeker, she blends a sporty aesthetic with an elegant finesse and demonstrates the eye-catching design skills for which the English shipbuilders are famous. The 25-metre vessel offers a unique cruising experience for up to 8 guests and her large sundeck is ideal for experiencing the Cannes Film Festival.
Cannes is a unique place that bridges the gap between European sensibility and Hollywood glamour. The result is that the film festival seamlessly blends these two worlds and lends the film industry a touch of class while shining a light on this magnificent corner of the Cote d’Azur. A Cannes Film Festival yacht charter can easily be combined with a trip to Monaco to take in the Grand Prix. In fact, May is a wonderful time to sample the Riviera by yacht and there are some beautiful destinations in the vicinity such as Cap Ferrat, Eze and the legendary beaches of St Tropez.
