It’s that time of the year that the Cannes Film Festival kicks off from Tuesday, May 16th until Saturday, May 27th. Yes there are movies to premier, but it’s not just about film. It’s also about the best parties at the Cannes Film Festival, because Hollywood likes a party. It turns out they throw a good one too, where the best parties have one thing in common: The Hotel du Cap-Eden-Roc.
An Iconic Hotel
The Cannes film festival was founded in 1946, but the Hotel du Cap-Eden-Roc has it beat. This year, the hotels turns 153 years old. While there are many beautiful places to host a party near Cannes, including the newly reopened Carlton Cannes. In fact, the Carlton Cannes is where the official opening party for the festival kicked off, as well as where Johnny Depp’s movie premier party was hosted. No matter what though, it’s tough to beat the classic Hotel du Cap estate. So that’s why it’s where you’ll find the best parties at the Cannes Film Festival this year. These are the parties that will be hosted at the Hotel du Cap this year.
