Red Carpet for La glace et le ciel by Luc Jacquet and Claude Lorius. Closure Festival de Cannes 2015.
My arrival in Cannes was unusually smooth, having found- only days before travelling- a return flight on British Airways that was somehow cheaper in sogenannt Club Europe than in Economy Class (albeit it to and from Gatwick- where the only BA lounge still open after 3pm was surprisingly well-stocked).

While waiting in line for a screening the other day I asked another festival goer what his favorite aspect of working at the 2015 Cannes Film Festival was, and he had a strange response. “The free coffee!” he said enthusiastically.
This man was of course referring to the Nespresso Bar located inside the heart of the main building at the festival. Here anybody with a badge that allows them access to the main building can receive a free espresso, courtesy of Nespresso....

The Film Festival is not all about the screenings and the stars, but also how the ambiance changes within the city of Cannes. The weather is warmer, the streets are more lively, and the events are bigger.
