CANNES, France, May 7, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Audio specialist Sennheiser will support The American Pavilion at the Cannes International Film Festival during its Conference Series this year in Cannes, which will feature panels and one-on-one interviews with the film industry's leading talent and entertainment personalities. Over the course of the 12-day festival, which is the most high profile event in the film industry, audiences will be able to listen to The American Pavilion Conference Series through Sennheiser wireless headphones.
In conjunction with its sponsor partners and in celebration of its 25th anniversary in Cannes, The American Pavilion has redesigned its location to incorporate design elements of The Peninsula Hotel properties and includes a new conference center, bar, restaurant and a media terrace/green room. By providing attendees with Sennheiser wireless headphones, The American Pavilion enables guests to enjoy conference content wherever they roam within the facility, while background noise is kept to a minimum.
"We are excited to feature Sennheiser's wireless headphone technology this year at The American Pavilion," commented Julie Sisk, director and founder of The American Pavilion. "Sennheiser's innovative technology will allow our guests to enjoy all the amenities of our open space, without missing any of the incredible interview and panel content that will be featured this year."
The American Pavilion asked Sennheiser to provide support in Cannes after reading about its activation during SXSW with Paste Magazine this past March, in which the company hosted three days of interviews with leading content creators such as Fred Armisen of SNL, LeVar Burton of Star Trek, editor in chief of Marvel Comics Alex Alonso, and others. During this activation, fans and attendees were able to listen to interview content anywhere on the activation grounds, while donning Sennheiser wireless headphones.
The American Pavilion Conference Series features industry panels each day that focus on topics like film finance, acquisitions, producing and film + technology. The interactive sessions are moderated by well-known entertainment journalists and routinely attract the top names in entertainment. In prior years, guests have included Francis Ford Coppola, Terry Gilliam, Martin Scorcese, Robert Duvall, Kevin Kline, Tommy Lee Jones, Jude Law, Colin Firth, Anjelica Huston, James Cameron and many others.
The American Pavilion, which is located in the International Village next to the Palais, has become a hub for film industry professionals to gather and share ideas during the Cannes Film Festival - the largest and most prestigious film festival in the world. The festival itself attracts over 20,000 industry professionals and over 4,000 journalists from around the globe.
