The world’s leading film festival, Cannes Film Festival, which celebrates the best names in the film industry, is set to return for its 74th edition this July. Shining a spotlight on emerging and established filmmakers and leading stars, what better way to enjoy the best of this famous, world-class event than via a luxury yacht charter?
Taking place annually in the sophisticated city of Cannes along the famous yachting hotspot of the French Riviera, this prestigious event transforms the city into a thriving hub of activity. A celebration of the art of film, the festival encompasses film premieres, red carpet events and parties. Taking place for the first time in its history during summer, due to protective measures, this year’s event is set to run between July 6 and July 17. Placing visitor health and safety as well as environmental protection and conservation at the heart of this year’s event, an ambitious programme has been laid out for 2021. Filled with several events, the programme highlights are best enjoyed from the luxury and privacy of a charter yacht.
As the central focal point of the film festival is the venue of the Palais des Festival in Cannes Vieux Port, charter yachts have become one of the main attractions of the event. Attracting some of the largest, most magnificent superyachts in the world each year, such as the 156m Dilbar and the 143m Sailing Yacht A, a Cannes Film Festival charter yacht is the most exciting and thrilling way to experience the event. Picture yourself joining in on the festival from the comfort of your own private superyacht, such as the stunning 55m Turquoise. Leading filmmakers, actors and models all walk the red carpet outside the Palais to attend premieres, placing the Port in the centre of the action. You can feel the electric and buzzing atmosphere of the festival from the deck of your charter yacht, all while adhering to local safety and health measures.
Whether you are in search of the most luxurious and exclusive accommodation or keen to host elegant events to showcase your brand, a Cannes Film Festival yacht charter makes for an ideal private or corporate opportunity as well. If you opt for a static yacht charter along the quay by the Palais des Festival, you will be able to host your own decadent events and parties onboard your yacht during the festival. Become a part of the festival in an elegant yet safe and COVID-19 compliant manner. Alternatively, choose to incorporate the event into your luxury charter journey along the spectacular French Riviera. Dock in either Port Canto or the Old Port for a day or two and enjoy seeing the festivities go by. Then enjoy a leisurely cruise to Saint Tropez, Antibes or Nice, further away from the humming activity taking place in Cannes. No matter which option you go for, a charter yacht is the best way to enjoy the leading film festival of the season!
