If you can, get to Cannes, that's my advice. Even if it rains (which it did). Even if it's shockingly expensive (oh yes it is). Even if, due to a byzantyne system of passes, it's harder to see a film there than almost anywhere else on the planet.
Mostly though, it's great. Thousands of people turning up to party (yeah, sure, some people do a bit of work there as well, but not, y'know, proper work), determined to meet other like-minded people.
It's like being at an orgy: naturally there are knobs and twats everywhere, and it all makes you feel a little bit dirty, but it's exciting and as long as you don't get stuck with the same arsehole all night, it's good fun.

If you are looking for a more animated form of entertainment try the animated short Whale, in which a man is unpleasantly woken by a whale on his front steps and Wasp, a computer generated animation that shows what to do with an irritating wasp that's buzzing you when you're at the seaside.
