How to Get a Taste of the Cannes Film Festival for Free

Where: Cannes, France

The Cannes Film Festival kicks off tomorrow with a screening of The Great Gatsby, and the only thing more glamorous than the parties on the big screen, will be the ones happening outside.

Leonardo DiCaprio might have said best when he compared going to Cannes to entering the helicopter scene in La Dolce Vita. "It's an insane experience," he explained. "The entire town is turned into a red carpet. Every hotel is a premiere. But at the same time, it is the mecca for the world to celebrate filmmaking and bold filmmaking."

Along with all of that decadence comes an unparallelled level of exclusivity which means everything is invite-only. But, us commoners will have one chance to see some of the fest's out-of-competition and classic films through the "Cinéma de la Plage" (Cinema on the Beach) program. These open-air screenings take place each evening, from May 15 to May 24, at the Cinéma de la Plage, the Festival's outdoors theater.

This year's program will pay tribute to Warner Bros.' and include some of the studio's classics like Dirty Harry, Bonnie & Clyde, and Matrix.

The program, which is free and open to the public, begins at 8:30 p.m. each night. For more information, visit the Cannes Film Festival's Official Website.
