WHAT OUR TRAVELERS SAY

This was a "once in a lifetime" experience. I could not have participated in the festival without the Smithsonian's program and I am very grateful to have had this wonderful opportunity.

- Lorraine M.

The Cannes International Film Festival would be a disaster to try to do on your own! Smithsonian made it most enjoyable.
