As the Cannes Film Festival celebrates 70 years, these images look back at the most notable and recognisable images from across the decades. From iconic images of Bridget Bardot to Princess Diana, these images celebrate the history that the Cannes Film Festival is removed for. Getty Images have been covering the festival for more than 20 years and is proud to house one of the world’s largest collections of archival Cannes Film Festival imagery, dating back to the first festival held in 1946. This year, we’ve got a team of 80 people on the ground in Cannes who will be completing over 15,000 man hours throughout the event.
