CANS IN GALICIA
Since 2004, the original Festival de Cans takes place in the village of Cans in Galicia, at the same time as the glamorous Cannes Film Festival. The 300 people living in Cans welcome 15,000 visitors and film lovers. The red carpet leads to barns and basements where the movies are shown and small tractors driven by locals are the official transport.
