The techCannes Business Club A New Lighthouse of Innovation in Cannes

Cannes, May 2024 - The launch of the techCannes Business Club marked a new era of innovation and collaboration at the Cannes Film Festival. Founded by Sarah Lelouch, this club aims to become the essential meeting point for cinema and technology professionals, opening up new perspectives for both industries. This initiative took place on the famous Vilebrequin beach, offering an idyllic setting for fruitful exchanges and exciting discoveries.

For three days, from May 17 to 19, the techCannes Business Club brought together more than 60 renowned speakers and more than 1,000 participants. This space was the scene of inspiring conferences, lively round tables, informative tutorials and pitches from innovative startups. The discussions explored varied themes, from the impact of artificial intelligence on cinema to the use of blockchain for film distribution, including immersive technologies such as virtual and augmented reality.

Sarah Lelouch, in an exclusive interview, shared her vision for the techCannes Business Club. She highlighted the importance of creating a space for convergence for film content creators and technology innovators. By bringing these two worlds together, the club aims to foster innovation, encourage collaboration and explore new methods of production and distribution. With Claude Lelouch, an emblematic director, as honorary president, the club benefits from a historical perspective and increased legitimacy.

Claude Lelouch, known for his bold approaches and his pioneering use of technology, perfectly embodies the spirit of the techCannes Business Club. His revolutionary techniques, such as the use of hand-held camerawork and the integration of music as a character in its own right, redefined the standards of cinema. As honorary president, he brings valuable experience and an inspiring vision for the future of cinema and technology.

The success of this inaugural event was praised by all participants, who appreciated the quality of the interventions and the networking opportunities. The discussions helped lay the foundations for future collaborations between the film and technology sectors. The next meeting has already been set: the techCannes Awards ceremony in Paris, scheduled for the end of June. This event promises to celebrate the best innovations and collaborations, highlighting the most promising projects and the most creative minds.

Club 13, located at 15 avenue Hoche in Paris, will serve as a setting for these upcoming meetings. This legendary place of French cinema, with its intimate atmosphere and careful aesthetic, will become an incubator of innovative ideas. By combining the cultural heritage of cinema with an openness to technological innovations, Club 13 embodies the spirit of the techCannes Business Club: a space where creativity and innovation meet to push the boundaries of the film industry.

The techCannes Business Club is already establishing itself as an essential platform for cinema and technology professionals. By promoting exchanges and collaborations, it opens new perspectives for these two dynamic sectors. The success of its launch in Cannes promises great prospects for future events and the innovative projects that will result from them.
