To celebrate our anniversary year, UniFrance Films will be flying the flag for French cinema at the 67th Cannes Film Festival from May 14-25, 2014, at a pavilion space newly redecorated by interior designer Sarah Lavoine.
Located on the Pantiero at the entrance to the International Village and a stone's throw from the Palais des Festivals, the UniFrance Films Pavilion will house the UniFrance teams who will be working alongside Jean-Paul Salomé and Isabelle Giordano to host professional meetings as well as interviews, cocktail receptions, dinners, and evening events in the company of crew members from the French films presented in the Official Selection and the festival's parallel sections.
The rooms at the UniFrance Films Pavilion will also be the setting for a new exhibition of photographs of French actors and filmmakers taken by Emanuele Scorcelletti during the 16th Rendez-vous with French Cinema in Paris held in January 2014. This exhibition was curated with support from our partners Parfums Givenchy and Madame Figaro.
UniFrance Films's traditional opening night cocktail reception will be held May 15, with guests including French sales agents and international distributors.
In partnership with the CNC - Centre national du cinéma et de l’image animée, UniFrance Films will host a cocktail reception to celebrate the closing of the Franco-Chinese Day event on May 16, and on May 17 will welcome all members of the French diplomatic corps and cultural services present at Cannes.
