Cannes Film Festival shows commitment to environmental responsibility

27.04.21

The Festival de Cannes has recognised the need for environmental responsibility related to hosting a major international event, and has announced a number of measures that will be in place for the 74th festival that will take place from July 6-17, 2021.

After consultation with Green Événements, the Festival organisers have realised the importance of reducing their carbon footprint : recycling tarpaulins and carpets, reduction of electricity usage thanks to planned lighting, optimisation of waste recovery, carbon offsetting contributions for travel, printing on certified paper etc.

Cannes Film Festival 2021 will have a three-pronged strategy:

  1. Reducing waste and carbon emissions.
  2. Recovering residual materials.
  3. Offsetting the carbon footprint.

12 initiatives will be in place for Cannes Film Festival 2021:

  1. 60% of the official cars will be electric or hybrid vehicles.
  2. A 50% reduction in the volume of red carpet used, already fully recyclable and recycled.
  3. A 24% reduction in carpet used in the International Village zones.
  4. A 50% reduction in paper printing based on a reduced print run and more online content. The festival's Official Programme will be available online, and the print version will be launched mid-May to subscribers.
  5. Maintaining a waste recovery rate of 95%. In 2019, 99% of the 250 tons of waste was recovered: 81% in materials, 19% in energy.
  6. Raising awareness of eco-responsibility with the organising committee, Marché du Film exhibitors, suppliers and participants.
  7. The appointment of an independent scientific committee to select reliable and relevant compensation programmes. During the next festival, the committee will unveil selected local, national and international projects to which the sums collected by the contributions of the festival and participants will be allocated.
  8. An environmental contribution from the festival to offset the footprint of the event's production (preparation, assembly, technical means, by products).
  9. An environmental contribution of €20 excl. VAT from festival goers to compensate for the footprint for travel and accommodation.
  10. A soft mobility incentive thanks to a pass for public transport access in Cannes on presentation of a festival badge.
  11. The total elimination of plastic water bottles (there were 20,000+ in 2019).
  12. Responsible catering: Each supplier will respect specifications encouraging the use of local producers and seasonal produce, offer vegetarian alternatives, reduce and limit waste.

Palais des Festivals certifications

After obtaining the “Sanitary Security Label” and “Ecovid Label” issued by SOCOTEC, in February 2021, the Palais des Festivals et des Congrès in Cannes was awarded North America’s top health certification for public hospitality facilities in March 2021, the GBAC STAR™ Facility.

Awarded by the Global Biorisk Advisory Council*, this certification attests the implementation of the strictest protocols in terms of cleaning, disinfection and prevention of infectious diseases within the establishment.

Already issued to the largest convention centres in the U.S, this certification has for the first time been awarded to a convention centre in France. These certifications have allowed health protocol assessments of the Palais' office and organisational areas, Tourist Office and shop, delivery docks, terraces, exhibition spaces, and reception and conference areas.

This is great news for the rejuvenation of Cannes events including Festival de Cannes. We’re looking forward to welcoming our clients back to Cannes events in the future.

Cannes Film Festival 2021

12.01.21

Cannes Film Festival organisers announce 2021 dates

Cannes Film Festival has announced they are planning to go ahead with the event from May 11-21.  

As well, the Festival has blocked out three potential contingency periods:  one in the first half of July, one in the second half of July and a third in the second half of August (the first fortnight of August was off the table due to French summer holidays).

We are looking forward to following the progress for Cannes Film Festival 2021 and working with global clients for their corporate event catering.

The Festival is a key destination on the film festival circuit and the city of Cannes is working hard to keep marketing it as a viable destination.  The Musée International du Cinéma et Festival de Cannes is a development scheduled to open in 2025 with 5 themed areas including a dedicated space for Film Festival projects, history of film and special effects.

5 Top Tips for your Event at the Cannes Film Festival

07.02.18

It's almost time to roll out the red carpet, dust off the tuxedo and finalise the details for your perfect Cannes Film Festival event. This is the time to see and to be seen and whether you are at the Variety party on the Croisette or planning an event at the Cannes Film Festival in a private Cannes Villa then attention to detail is everything. Adams & Adams have over 15 years of experience of organising events for clients at the Film Festival and here are our top 5 tips to ensure that your event is perfect in every detail.

Adams & Adams Cannes Film Festival

1

Location - Stick closely to La Croisette. Yours will probably be one of several events being held on the same evening and, if your guests have to try and grab a cab then you run the risk of a low turnout - walking distance is the name of the game. Choose one of the Cannes Croisette venues from our selection.

2

Date - Check your dates with the festival planning and try not to clash with some of the more exclusive and celebrated events that are the 'must have' invitation of the year. Avoiding the date of the annual Amfar charity event is always a good plan!

3

Invitations - It's never too early to invite your guests, add that date to the diary as soon as possible.

4

Menu - More and more of our clients are choosing options from our superfoods and healthy menu options and, during a major event it's always a welcome change for guests to be able to eat something delicious but that is a little lighter than the usual cocktail fayre.

5

Champagne - No self-respecting Film Festival event is without some great fizz and of course we are in France, home of arguably the best champagnes in the world. But our advice is to get that order in early, to avoid any issues with your first choice being available.

Cannes Film Festival with Adams & Adams

So it begins....the madness of the 2013 Cannes Film Festival begins today and we are delighted that this year we will be catering at some truly glittering occasions. We'd love to be able to share the guest list and some of the photos with you, but at Adams & Adams discretion is second nature and that's why we are an integral part of the Film Festival. When the celebrities finally sit down to a smaller, more intimate celebration, the last thing they need is another camera being pointed at them. So although we are all very excited about some of the names who will be eating Adams & Adams food over the next 10 days unfortunately we can't share it with you. Just trust us when we say that Cannes Film Festival 2013 means that Adams & Adams are sure to be running shoulders with the stars. See you on the Red Carpet.
