GL events demonstrates all its expertise for the 70th anniversary of the festival.

From 17 to 28 May, the Cannes Film Festival will be celebrating its 70th anniversary, presided over by the Spanish director Pedro Almodovar. Leading stars from the film industry will be walking down the red carpet to defend their films. Under the non-stop flash of cameras from around the world, stars such as Sofia Coppola, Michael Haneke, Vincent Lindon, François Ozon, Joaquin Phoenix, Isabelle Huppert, Nicole Kidman, Marion Cotillard and Robert Pattinson will be climbing the famous steps.

GL events will also be present throughout the Festival, and will once again be demonstrating all its expertise in different fields: general contracting, structures, furniture, signage, decoration, lighting and power, etc. The Group has been providing high-quality services for the festival for more than twenty years now.

GL event’s teams will be in charge of the tents, furniture, structures, signage, reception services and overall layout of the Pantiero International Village, the focal point for business meetings and public relations.

The film industry’s professionals - producers, distributors, vendors or festival organisers - will hold meetings in Le Marché du Film (Film Market), a unique space designed by GL event’s teams.

As in previous years, the Group will also be building a temporary film theatre with 460 seats, set up inside a 7.50-metre-high Revolution structure installed on the roof of the Riviera.

Other key services for the Festival will also be provided by the Group; for example, the general contracting work and decorations for Plage des Palmes and the Café des Palmes, the decorations for the Terrasses du festival and the Ambassadeurs Lounge, as well as the installation and decoration of several structures, including the AGORA, an Absolute structure overlooking the beach.

Tailor-made elegance to welcome the leading lights of the film industry and movie fans from all over the world.
