Dinard British Film Festival

Technicolor sponsors the 23rd edition of the British Film Festival of Dinard

The 23rd edition of the British Film Festival of Dinard will take place on October 3-7, 2012 in Dinard, France. Technicolor is the official patron of the festival this year and “Le prix de l’image” award will be presented by Gary Donnan, EVP Technology & Research.

During the festival, Technicolor will showcase its innovations in entertainment technologies for professionals and film amateurs who will be able to attend 3 workshops:

- "3D MasterClass" by Pete Routhier and Thierry Borel
- Technologies for measuring spectators’ emotions, by Cristina Gomila and Julien Fleureau
- Creation of visual effects, by Alexandra Added

On October 4th, the Technicolor Foundation for Cinema Heritage will also hold for the first time in France a screening of Peter Brook’s restored film Tell me Lies (1968).

True to its original objectives, British Film Festival of Dinard has become a vector for all the films aiming to conquer the European market.

The festival is also a launching-place for previews and we can say that it had flair in programming previews of films which have all received an award in Dinard : Shallow Grave (1994), The Full Monty (1997), Billy Elliot (2000), Bloody Sunday (2002) or Girl with a Pearl Earring (2003). What a great reward for our event that offers film enthusiasts the opportunity to discover original works.
