 shots in Cannes 2017

shots in Cannes 2017

It's Cannes 2017 & we outline our plans for the week, what we'll be doing and where you can find us.

It's that time of year once again. A time when, ahead of us lays a week of meetings, drinking, seminars, drinking, networking, drinking and, if we're lucky and plan things really well, at least a couple of hours sleep each night. 

As usual, shots will be in Cannes the entire week and will be bringing you a free daily newsletter each morning - starting with this one - with insight, news and opinion pieces about the festival. 

We'll also be rounding up the winners of each and every category during the week as well as bringing you sections of this years shots Cannes special magazine, the front cover of which you can see below, which includes interviews with Film jury president and cover star, Pete Favat and Entertainment Lions president, PJ Pereira, plus insight from the Titanium & Integrated president, Tham Khai Meng and much more.



There are other things we'll be doing across the week, outlined below, not least the famous shots Beach Party, and we hope to see many of you there.

Enjoy the week.
