Christie, a major provider of visual solutions for business, entertainment and industry, has been selected by XDC as the projection supplier for the digital screenings at the 60th Cannes Film Festival, May 16 to 27, 2007.
Last year, more than 60 years on from the first festival, Cannes played host to more than 28,000 accredited industry professionals from 107 participating nations, and a combined total of 149 features and short-films were selected for the festival, with over 1,000 movies screened during the festival and the Film Market, making it the largest celebration of cinema in the World.
Christie will provide XDC with 2K DLP Cinema digital cinema projectors which will screen digital titles over the course of the Festival. And as the Official Digital Cinema Partner of the Cannes Film Festival, XDC will offer a complete digital screening solution for over 16 auditoriums at the festival.
“As the leading manufacturer Digital Cinema projection technology, Christie is deeply committed to helping movie-makers around the world bring their vision to the screen and shown with the highest possible image quality,” said Dale Miller, Vice-President of Christie EMEA. “Cannes is probably the most recognised film festival in the World and a major cultural influence in cinema.
