Cinema Against AIDS is a world-renowned charitable fundraiser held each year since 1993 during the Cannes Film Festival, and it is the most coveted ticket of the film festival.

The black-tie event is celebrated for its glittering guest list, its unpredictable live auction, and its unrivaled success in generating funds for amfAR’s lifesaving AIDS research programs. Since 1993, amfAR Cinema Against AIDS events have raised more than $100 million.

For the past two years, legendary fashion editor Carine Roitfeld has curated a major fashion show as one of the centerpieces of the event.

The legendary live auction has included a date with Leonardo DiCaprio, a private performance by legendary rock icons Duran Duran, a family portrait sitting with Annie Leibovitz, the opportunity to star in a short film by Karl Lagerfeld.

Tickets are highly sought after due to the events association with the world’s most renowned movie stars who participate in the live unscripted auctions which in the past has witnessed George Clooney bestowing a kiss upon a lucky auction winner and Sharon Stone dancing to an impromptu performance by Elton John and Ringo Starr.
