Due to weather, the private party will now take place in the ballroom at the Martinez hotel.
Due to the non-stop rain drenching Cannes on Saturday, The Hollywood Reporter has decided to move its International Artist of the Year party honoring Fan Bingbing to the Martinez hotel ballroom, Acqua1, where Cannes' industry elite can enjoy a warm reception and feel free to wear their best cocktail attire (and shoes) without fear of being soaked to the bone.
