CANNES FILM FESTIVAL

Renault has been an Official Partner of the Cannes Film Festival for 30 years. More than a quarter of a century of glamour, celebrations and films, during which the brand’s vehicles (from the Renault 30 to Latitude) have escorted the greatest film stars to the red carpet.

Renault, Official Partner of the Festival for the past 30 years 

For the 66th edition of the festival, taking place May 15 to 26, 2013, an official fleet of Latitude and Espace will escort the elite of international film to the red carpet. Overall, over 200 Renault cars will drive up and down the Croisette, including two 100% electric stars: ZOE and Twizy. Renault's new crossover, Captur, will also be joining the official fleet.

 

This year, Renault is inviting the winners of our Facebook competition "Inter-country Battle", as well as the winners of "Un Prince (presque) Charmant", and the winners announced at the French Council Gala Dinner in Dubai.

 


An innovative Festival 

Inès Sastre and Twizy.

 

Le festival propose un choix toujours aussi éclectique de films entre Cannes court, le rendez-vous du film court à Cannes, les expositions, la Sélection officielle, la Leçon de cinéma et Cannes Classics qui met à l'honneur les péplums, , le cinéma indien et Jean Cocteau.

 

Entre Gatsby le Magnifique de Baz Luhrmann qui ouvre le Festival et Zulu de Jérôme Salle qui le clôturera, Cannes déploiera ses charmes, ses mystères et ses traditions : une cinquantaine de films en Sélection officielle, des dizaines d’invités chaque jour, des centaines de projections et des milliers d’amoureux du cinéma.

 

This year, the Festival's jury is eclectic, international and always glamorous. Presided over by actor/director Steven Spielberg, it welcomes to its ranks Ang Lee, Nicole Kidman, Christoph Waltz, Vidya Balan, Naomi Kawase, Cristian Mungiu, Lynne Ramsay et Daniel Auteuil.

 

They will choose between 20 films in competition.

 

As always, Cannes has installed a little innovation here and there. This year, Cannes Classics will honor peplums,Yasujirô Ozu, Indian cinema and Jean Cocteau; and a lot more events will be organized during the festival.

 

Between Baz Luhrmann's Gatsby le Magnifique at the opening of the festival and Zulu by Jérôme Salle closing, Cannes will deploy its charm, its mysteries and traditions: about fifty films in the Official Selection, dozens of guests every day, hundreds of screenings, and thousands of film-buffs.
