The Lumière Film Festival renews its partnership with the Group

As the cradle of cinema, the City of Lyon has hosted the Lumière Film Festival since 2009. Every year, this internationally renowned festival celebrates the history of the film industry, and has already awarded prizes to iconic figures, such as Clint Eastwood, Ken Loach, Quentin Tarantino and Jane Fonda. This year, the 14th Lumière Film Festival was held from 15 to 23 October, with Tim Burton receiving the famous Prix Lumière for his life’s work. GL events has been a partner of this major film festival since its creation, and demonstrated its expertise once again this year by providing structures, audiovisual services, power distribution, overlays and signage. Moreover, the Prix Lumière award ceremony was hosted for the 14th time in a row by the Lyon Convention Centre, which is managed by GL events. Located at the edge of the Cité Internationale, this atypical venue is designed to host a wide range of events: shows, concerts, congresses and conventions.
