Around 4,000 journalists from 75 countries attend the Festival each year.
The Festival lasts for approximately two weeks.
The top award at the festival is the Palme d'Or, the prize for best film. It was first presented in 1955, replacing another "Grand Prix" prize.
The top award for a first film is the Camera d'Or, presented by an independent jury. It was first presented in 1978.
The festival is divided into five sections: 1. In Competition - films up for the Palme d'Or.
2. Out of Competition - films not competing for the top prize, but there for the publicity.
3. Un Certain Regard - usually challenging art films that aren't quite up to competing in the mainstream.
4. Cinéfondation - works done by film students.
5. The Market - started in the early 1960s, a place to buy and sell films.
There are two festivals which are not part of the official Cannes festival but run at the same time: 1. Cannes International Critics Week.
2. The Directors Fortnight.
