If the Met Gala doesn’t satisfy your artistic needs, then, probably, the Cannes Film Festival is the way to go. The Cannes Film Festival is an annual event held in Cannes, France which previews new films of all genres as well as documentaries from all over the globe. Again, sorry to burst your bubble, but this is an invitation only event (I have yet to figure out if you can buy these) held in the Palais des Festivals et des Congress in May of each year.
This festival has gained a high importance for the European Film Industry. According to Jill Forbes and Sarah Street, The Cannes film festival is a stand out compared to the others held from different parts of the world (i.e. Venice Film Festival & Berlin International Film Festival) because The Cannes Film Festival offers an opportunity to determine a country’s image in the world of film. It is also recognised that the European cinema is unlike any other; it’s “art” cinema.
