The famous film festival
Tourism is the main industry in Cannes. In addition, there's the Cannes Film Festival; everyone wants to climb the stairs of the Palais des Festivals and take part. Cannes has been the official name of the festival since 2002, and it takes place in May, lasting about two weeks. It used to be called the Festival International du Film de Cannes. The Palais des Festivals is more impressive for what it represents than for its exterior architecture. Only participants of the conferences and guests are allowed to enter during the festival.
The surrounding square is decorated with life-size statues, in addition to photographs of artists and of course the Walk of Fame, with palm prints of the many stars who have passed through this place.
