France - Christie is the official projection technology partner for the 75th Cannes Film Festival. The event, which runs 17-28 May, will see projectors from across Christie’s broad portfolio powering screens throughout all venues. The festival is set to welcome approximately 35,000 guests, a significant increase over last year’s 24,000. Christie will provide installation and show support for the occasion, as it celebrates its 16th year as technical partner.
“It is a tremendous honour to continue our association with Festival de Cannes, with its renowned prestige and rich history making it a truly unique celebration, year after year,” says Adil Zerouali, senior sales director, Cinema EMEA, Christie. “We will aim to showcase this year’s outstanding line-up of films in the most visually impactful way possible with our leading projection technology. It’s great to see that the festival has returned to its usual point in the calendar, and I’m excited to see it back in full force, with all the vibrancy, talent and creativity we’ve come to expect.”
Christie has supplied an array of both RGB pure laser projectors - which were successfully introduced in 2021 - and Xenon illuminated projectors to cater to the dedicated rooms and screen sizes throughout the festival. The RGB pure laser projectors include the Christie CP4440-RGB, CP4330-RGB, CP2315-RGB and CP2306-RGBe models - all of which are DCI-compliant.
The Christie CP4440-RGB, CP4330-RGB and CP2315-RGB models feature Christie Real|Laser illumination, which delivers outstanding colour and contrast, with greater than 95% of the Rec. 2020 colour space. Technical specification for the projection technology throughout the festival is overseen by the Commission Supérieure Technique de l’Image et du Son (CTS).
