The 69th Cannes Film Festival will be hosted from 11 – 22 May and the Riviera is already abuzz with action.
I will be posting an in-depth guide for Cannes Film Festival by the end of this weekend which will include tips for transport, last-minute accommodation, dining suggestions and inside information that only locals know!
It will also include accessibility notes for Cannes for people with restricted mobility or wheelchair-bound festival attendees, so please share this vital information to anyone you know attending Cannes Film Festival and especially Entr’2 Marches.
CANNES FILM FESTIVAL 2016 – Recommended Suppliers
I receive a number of requests for information during Cannes Film Festival, and each year I curate a list of Cannes Film Festival suppliers that Access Riviera recommends if you need to ensure your film release, promotion or event is a success while here in the region.
Disclaimer: None of these companies recommended have paid to appear on this list; I’m not a sales person for any of them or a booking agent – I’m recommending them because they have local knowledge and high standards of service and/or products. If you use them, please mention you saw them on Access Riviera.
Best wishes for Festival de Cannes 2016!
