Saturday 12th May – Lunch on the Beach in Central Cannes during the 71st International Film Festival

Dear Members and Friends,

This year we have arranged our lunch in the very middle of the Croisette, right in the midst of all “the players” and atmosphere of this International Festival. Here you will enjoy an excellent lunch with Club members and guests at the Vegaluna beach restaurant on the Croisette beach, opposite the Intercontinental Carlton Hotel.

Cannes is very animated during the Festival – this year from Tuesday May 8th to Saturday May 19th – and the atmosphere can perhaps be best enjoyed on foot. The walk to the Palais des Festival is an easy and pleasant one along the sea and the Croisette.

At noon, we will gather for aperitifs and nibbles, enhanced by palm trees, white sand and azure sea. A fine three-course luncheon (with all beverages) will follow, augmented by insights from Film Industry professionals, as well as the famous film quiz (which will not be as difficult as in the past)!

Time: 12h00
