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 trip to space 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, and works from Andy Warhol, Damien Hirst, and many others. The 2013 edition of the series, Cinema Against AIDS XX, exceeded all expectations, raising nearly $25 million in a single night to help amfAR in its continued fight against HIV/AIDS.
As in previous years, the guest list for our 21st annual Cinema Against AIDS will include many of the celebrities and personalities associated with the film festival while also attracting familiar faces from the worlds of fashion, music, business, and international society.
