Paris, 14 May 2012 – Eleven films in the Official Selection for the 65th Cannes Film Festival benefit from Technicolor’s legendary visual and audio know-how. The impressive number illustrates the company’s commitment to film industry creators, distributors and partners.

Among the 11 feature films chosen for this year’s Official Selection, which Technicolor contributed to, six are in competition  including the opening feature, Wes Anderson’s Moonrise Kingdom.

Technicolor is proud that its teams in North America (Hollywood, Montreal, New York, Toronto) and Europe (Boulogne-Billancourt, France and Rome) supplied services to:

    Moonrise Kingdom, directed by Wes Anderson (Opening film, in competition)
    Cosmopolis, directed by David Cronenberg (In competition)
    Lawless, directed by John Hillcoat (In competition)
    The Paperboy, directed by Lee Daniels (In competition)

Technicolor’s Creative Services -  which include post-production, visual effects, animation, digital cinema distribution and content coding and formatting for transmission, help its clients make the transition to digital technologies. The company serves major and independent film studios as well as distributors, advertisers and producers of software and video games.

While Cannes has always been a central event for Technicolor, this year’s festival is especially important in light of the company’s recent launch of digital post-production and dubbing services in France, reinforcing its worldwide leadership. Technicolor acquired the activities of ADJ (Auditoriums de Joinville), SIS (Société Industrielle de Sonorisation), ScanLab and Duboi in January, at the same time as it announced the creation of a film and television dubbing studio in France.
