AFP a partner in the ‘Cannes FAIT LE MUR’ photo exhibition
On the occasion of the 68th Cannes Film Festival, Agence France-Presse is partnering with the city of Cannes for the third time to present ‘Cannes FAIT LE MUR’, an exhibition of 18 giant photographs which will adorn the walls of the city and its rue d’Antibes from 13 may to 31 August 2015.
13 May 2015
Agence France-Presse and Cannes have chosen energy and movement as the themes of this exhibition.
The images reflect the artists’ enthusiasm and complicit looks as much as their glamorous and sometimes offbeat poses - Quentin Tarantino’s dance step, Léa Seydoux’s selfie, Isabelle Huppert’s air of serenity and Viggo Mortensen adjusting his bow tie before entering the Palais.
AFP has covered the Festival since its creation in 1946.
From 13 to 24 May, a team of 26 journalists will provide live coverage of the cinema event of the year in text, photo, video and infographics.
In 2014, AFP distributed more than 8,500 images during the two-week festival.
With its network of 500 photographers who are regular winners of the most prestigious international prizes, AFP distributes more than 3,000 pictures a day and is recognised for its photography expertise and coverage.
Some 23 million images are available on the multimedia platform AFP Forum, whose offer is enriched by more than 50 partners.
More than five million photographs were downloaded from this site in 2014. Created in 1985, the international photo service has multiplied its production seven-fold since 2000.
Nikon France and the laboratory Atelier-Images & Cie are partners of AFP for this exhibition.
