Technicolor Brands Win Three Cannes Lions – One Gold and Two Silver for Exceptional Film Craft

In addition to three wins, the Technicolor family worked on numerous other winning projects as Cannes Lions celebrated onscreen artistry of innovative filmmakers.

  • Technicolor’s MPC took Gold for Visual Effects and Silver for Animation for Edeka ‘2117’ set in an AI world.
  • Technicolor’s The Mill won a Silver Lion for Visual Effects for Monster.com ‘Opportunity Roars’ – with its 100% CGI photo-real monster.

As the 65th annual Cannes Lions Festival came to a close, the Technicolor family of brands came away with three Film Craft Lions – one Gold and Two Silver – as well as having worked on a number of other winners and shortlisters, and a Film Lions Grand Prix winner. Cannes Lions is the prestigious awards festival for the creative global communications, entertainment, design, and tech industries, and the Film Craft Lions celebrate the very best of onscreen artistry and exceptional filmmaking.

Following is a list of the award-winning work, and additional winners that Technicolor brands worked on.


Technicolor’s MPC won for its work on Edeka ‘2117’ – a four-minute film with over 80 CG shots that required nuanced visual effects and animation to convey subtle emotion in an AI world – all while dealing with the project’s unique challenges in complexity and scale.
