For two years, artists have had all the difficulties to express themselves to their public. 

To allow the OFF DE CANNES to continue to defend their interests in a more efficient way, we are pleased to announce the reopening of the Great International Web Contest since Tuesday, March 15, 2022.

The goal of the team, this year, is to give us the means to bring artists and art lovers more visibility in order to obtain a real recognition from our institutions. 

To do so, we propose to all artists, amateurs and professionals, to post their works (photos, videos, music, texts, clips...) on

in the fields of cinema, music, dance, fashion, writing, visual arts - photography, painting, sculpture, NFT and other digital arts - from March 15 to May 5, 2022.

This competition allows artists to express themselves in each artistic discipline : cinema (directors/actors), music, dance, writing, fashion (stylists, models, photographers), Fine Arts (photography, painting, sculpture). 

The OFF de Cannes will bring to the talents, often multidisciplinary, some of which are followed all year long and will become the stars of tomorrow, a connection with several of our professionals and an international visibility thanks to our numerous media partners from all over the world. 

Last year, the team organized the July 14 OFF de Cannes’ Garden Party to celebrate their 15th (+1) anniversary. Just to remember the last event during Cannes festival 2021, for the first time in 74 years the Cannes film festival have taken place in the heat of July, from 6th to 17th. The 14th of July is a historic date for France. The last presidents of French republic invited the main personalities in the Presidential Palace of the Elysee for a mythic Garden Party. This year, the president Macron was not allowed to organize its event, due to the pandemic. 

So, Alain Zirah and Anne Gomis organized the OFF DE CANNES’ Garden Party of July 14th at the Palais Massier, a luxurious place during Cannes festival, to celebrate their 15th anniversary. It was a great opportunity that could not be missed Alain Zirah and Anne Gomis to present a fashion show composed by a dozen of talented designers and beautiful models in a palace while, on la Croisette, tuxedos and long dresses rub shoulders with vacationers in shorts and flip-flops. 

It is then in front of the cake of the pastry shop Sana Herbert intended to celebrate that 15th anniversary that a dumbfounded public attended the show of hypnosis of Magnetic which was able to put to sleep one of the volunteers before the launching of the After-Party Color Dancing and the succession of DJ clubbing as Galaxy Cat, and famous DJ and dancers from the JLC Family.

Many singers as Saori Jo, Indilov, Will Barber make the guests dance during the after party with the female DJ Galaxy Cat, Papa London, Divin, Malek, Moh Green, Paul Kabesa and the hypnotist Magnetik who surprised all the audience as Bebert the hornet, the French mascot of TV shows which sings in a bee outfit.The After Party get a special audience of female fans of afrobeat singer Malek Malekoumsa (Senegal) and a speech by Barbara Vittorelli (Miss Brazil) and many interviews alive on the stairs with Jimmy Turlet for Blackfeeling radio.

The radio partners Radio Diamant (Paris) get a live show during one hour, Black Feeling Radio (Marseille) get interviews from Saty Djelass, Miss Brazil Barbara Vitorelli, Corazon Ugalde Armenta, Tony Stark and all the prestigious guests, Marc Deschamps was backstage with the artists for Enka Radio (Belgium) and Cine Magazine (Cannes) get interviews inside the palace.

With the big help of Paulette Mouquet (Ready Lady) and Bintou Kimberley (Chic Image), a great Fashion show introduced international fashion designers as Emeline K(Ivory Cost), Kombate Sylvanal (Togo) Anggy Haif (France), Ptetty Creation (Morocco). During the After Party, Paulette Mouquet and her team shot an episode of the TV Reality show HOLLYWOOD STAR in Paris, special Cannes with some actors from LA, Paris and Cannes.


During all the afternoon, the Garden Party had let numerous artists performed on the stage with Eliot Cohen from the famous international Red Bus Recording Studios (London) as godfather. The studio produced the Bee Gees, Mariah Carey, Kool & the Gang and many international artists.

Here in the Garden Party, the show had began with Adelia Martins and Francine Cazanobe with jazz songs from Saint Germain des Près. Brazilian dancers had adorned with multicolored feathers set the palace in fire with caliente rhythms and André Lenzi mixed martial arts and oriental dancers for Lame d’Orient. 


The show began with Brazilian dancers Ladies Glam United then Lame d'Orient to highlighted the exemplary work of many singers and musicians as the master of veena Raghunath Manet (India), the singers Riker Lynch (USA), Jean Marie Monteiro (Guinea Bissau), the visual and sound designer Devy Man (France) with the dancer Shigemi Sawa (Japan), the tap dancer Angelo Borer (Switzerland), and many more…with the patrons Bruno Chatelin, and Eliot Cohen.


Asta Jakubson (Irland) introduced her silver wire dresses, inspired by Joan of Arc.  The Sri Lankan designer Enoka Fonseca received the Coup de Coeur Prize from the OFF de Cannes for her red dresses fashion show with gorgeous red models on the stairs of the palace. The writer Lionel Gnali then received the OFF de Cannes-PACA Films Prize for his book A broken destiny.
