Cannes out of Cannes
From 14 to 19 May, Orange is celebrating the glamour of Cannes in selected shops across its footprint (France, Luxembourg, Slovakia, Spain, Tunisia, Cameroon and Senegal). Film buffs can test their knowledge of the silver screen and win prizes through film quizzes or immerse themselves into the heart of Cannes through interactive experiences. Who knows, they might even win a VIP trip to rub shoulders with the stars on the iconic montées des marches.
Cannes Festival TV
Live action so you don’t miss a moment
Coproduced with Canal +, Orange and the Cannes Film Festival bring you live coverage from the montées des marches, press conferences, photo-calls and interviews with the stars as well as VIP events. Broadcast in French and English, coverage will be available via YouTube and Dailymotion, the official mobile app as well as CANAL channel 19 and Orange channel 29.
The official app
Follow all the breaking news and enjoy this year’s Festival in all its richness and diversity
Orange and the Cannes Film Festival have jointly created the official Festival app. This free and bilingual content gives you exclusive access to the latest announcements and also brings the Festival to life via news, videos and photo galleries. The app also enables people working at the Festival to manage their travel and agenda.
On the 17 May, Orange is hosting a special screening at the Orange Velodrome. 2,000 customers have been invited to the cinema-themed evening in this famous stadium where one of the movies from the Cannes 2015 “Out of Competition” category will be screened: Mad Max Fury Road. Before the film starts, the audience will be projected into the world of Cannes with a red carpet entrance, photographers and host of fun entertainment. They will have the chance to win goodies and a VIP package to live the dream in Cannes the following weekend.
Orange lends its connectivity expertise to the Festival
This dedicated space in the Palais des Festivals welcomes accredited journalists and photographers to work in a warm and comfortable location. Throughout the duration of the Festival from 9am to midnight, they can access free Orange Wi-Fi in a quiet spot away from the hubbub of the screenings and red carpet events.
