Interesting Photographs of Celebrities’ Life at the Cannes Film Festival in The Past

The Festival International du Film was supposed to begin in Cannes in 1939, but due to the war, the launch date was put off. Finally, on 20 September 1946 the Festival de Cannes opened its doors, the first great international cultural event of the post-war period.

The Festival was organised as a non-profit organisation, managed by a Board of Directors and was to become “state-approved” as in 1972.

It has taken place every year – with the exception of 1948 and 1950 – first in the month of September, then in May as of 1952. After years of “Grand Prix”, the Palme d’Or was created in 1955.

Here’s a few interesting photographs of celebrities’ life at the Cannes Film Festival in the past.

Interesting Vintage Cannes Film Festival Posters

The new poster for the most famous film festival in the world was unveiled today, but how does it measure up against past efforts?

1939: The first ever ‘Festival International du Film’ was scheduled to start on 1 September, but was forced to close after the first night because of the outbreak of WWII. This poster, featuring an illustration by Jean Gabriel Daumergue, is the first and still one of the best.
1949: A distinct lack of funds led to there being no festival in 1948, but never fear, it was back the year afterwards with a slightly dubious Olympic-style poster.
1952: The Festival moved from September to April to make the most of the beginning of the tourist season. The poster though, er, still looks like an advert for the Olympics. In fact it arguably looks better than the adverts for this year’s Olympics.
