The Cannes Film Festival is already over. The editorial staff looks back on 11 days of screenings, stars and steps.
There was definitely no shortage of stars on the famous Cannes red carpet! Photographers were able to photograph hundreds of them, in tuxedos or designer dresses. On the evening of May 24, the Festival celebrated its 75e edition with 121 impressive international stars climbing the emblematic steps of the Palace. For the greatest pleasure of photographers.
Tom Cruise and Top Gun Maverick. We certainly cannot leave out May 18, marked by the arrival of Tom Cruise in Cannes to present Top Gun Maverick (Category Out of Competition). After several interviews and a few photos with the fans, the actor began the process with the film crew. In doing so, eight Alpha Jets of the Patrouille de France greeted him from the top of the Croisette, at nearly 600 km / h. The film received a huge standing ovation from the audience. A whole day for the American actor, who was awarded an honorary Palme d’or by the Festival.

The Festival was also marked by several conferences, photocalls, a few private parties, numerous hotel seats by paperazzi, etc. Cannes life has once again adapted to the Festival programme. Between the Palace and the Hotel Martinez, it was impossible NOT to come across a star.
The event always ends with the traditional award ceremony. This year, Ruben Östlund won the Palme d’Or for his film A triangle of sadness, a very critical, even irreverent, comedy about the world of influencers. The Swedish director received his first Palme d’or five years ago for The place.
And in addition to the contest, there was a major announcement! On May 26, David Lisnard (Mayor of Cannes), accompanied by Festival Director Thierry Frémaux, announced the planned opening of the International Museum of Cinema in Cannes in 2028. 18,300m² dedicated to cinema, the Festival, combining fun and technology. A two-hour visit that will end with a climb up the steps of the Palace.
