Jan 2, 2013 —  Film festivals come in all shapes and sizes. They can be inordinately glitzy and celeb-heavy affairs or just a bunch of students getting together to show their latest iPhone videos.

There are several thousand film festivals all over the world, some of which offer premiere screenings of the next Hollywood hit and some of which feature bizarre artsy productions that will leave you scratching your head for weeks.

France’s Cannes International Film Festival (or “Le Festival International du Film de Cannes”), is undoubtedly one of the more famous film festivals, though this prestigious annual gathering is not open to the general public. Luckily, regular Joe’s can attend The Sundance Film Festival in Utah, but tickets often sell out months in advance, and the event regularly draws upwards of 50,000 people.

Most major cities have sprouted their own film festivals these days, including Los Angeles, New York, San Francisco, London, Venice, and beyond, so if you’re a movie buff, your options are almost as limitless as the number of great movies made across the globe every year.

Grab some popcorn and check out some of our favorites here on Party Earth.
