The friendship between Russia and France is an intense one which goes back a long time. As is often the way, it was through culture that this link was forged and strengthened. The Festival of Russian Art in Cannes is a perfect illustration of this, and this is one of the many events that reinforce Franco-Russian relations.
For 14 years, each summer is seen out in elegant style with a host of cultural events. The Russians are attentive hosts, offering the rest of the world a magnificent view of their culture and their dynamic artistic creativity. Music, dance, folklore, painting, circus arts, food and so on; the Festival of Russian Youth Art shimmers with excellence. This is the opportunity to discover acclaimed artists on this major international stage.
Set up in 2006 as a "satellite" of the older Festival of Russian Art, the Festival of Russian Youth Art has become a prestigious event in its own right, and offers young Russian virtuosos the chance to mix with the next generation of talent in Cannes.
