Cannes: Fest Vet Shares 11 Tips for First-Time Visitors to Croisette (Video)

THR's awards analyst Scott Feinberg, on eve of first trip to Cannes, seeks advice from Canal+'s Didier Allouch, who already has 26 Cannes fests under his belt.

I recently had a conversation about the Cannes Film Festival with my friend Didier Allouch, the French-born Hollywood correspondent for the French premium pay television channel Canal+. Didier has covered the last 26 editions of Cannes and will be the only journalist interviewing talent on the red carpet outside of the Palais theater this year, so, as I prepared for my first trip to the famous fest in the south of France, I figured that he was as good a resource to consult as anyone.

Didier was kind enough to prepare 11 survival tips for me and other first-time visitors to Cannes, which you can hear us discuss in detail by checking out the video at the top of this post.
