Cannes Film Festival: Air France Brings Cinema to The Skies


Once again this year, Air France is partner and official carrier of the Cannes Film Festival, whose 72nd edition is taking place from May 14 to 25, 2019. On this occasion, the company will be celebrating 39 years of partnering the biggest movie fest in the world.

In-flight film festival

Air France adapts its cinematographic production to offer passengers, on long-haul flights, a selection of movies that have won prizes at previous editions of the Cannes Film Festival.

In May, passengers will be able to watch Capharnaüm by Nadine Labaki (2018), Sofiaby Meryem Benm’Barek (2018), and Hyènes by Djibril Diop Mambéty (1992).

Action!

The company proudly organized the film shoot for Sibyl, directed by Justine Triet with two of the film’s actresses Virginie Efira and Adèle Exarchopoulos, screened in the official competition at the Cannes Film Festival! The film will be screened on May 24, 2019 on the Croisette, at the same time as its official release in cinemas.

A love story

Ever since the first movie shown – An American in Paris – on board a Constellation flying from New York to Paris in 1951, and subsequently in May 1966 when Louis Malle’s Viva Maria! marked the introduction of two films in its long-haul flight programme, cinema has been part of Air France’s DNA, and is now a key part of the travel experience.

As the first European airline to offer digital video to all its passengers, the company currently offers up to 1,400 hours of on-demand video, in 12 languages on 38,000 individual screens, and a rich and diverse programme on its latest-generation in-flight entertainment systems.

The airline's carefully selected offer is adapted to the tastes and cultures of all its customers, and this vast selection of films is enhanced by feature films broadcast in their original version.

Air France Studio

On board or at the foot of an airplane on the tarmac, in an airport lounge, at a check-in counter or in a vast hangar, Air France Studio provides the film, fashion and media worlds a unique environment for film shoots.

Air France Studio also supplies film sets with Air France accessories, products and vehicles and accompanies the teams behind the scenes – from the organization to the promotion of audiovisual achievements – and takes care of the transport of film crews and equipment.

Wow! Stunning! Hilton seems to be taking Africa by storm. Just a couple of years back, they opened the first ever in Eswatini.

Thank you for sharing such a detailed review about ethiopian airlines in your post. I am an avid traveller and keep reading flight reviews to assess the options available. Your review particularly drew my attention because you have shared so many pictures to capture every aspect of the flight experience. It is a very nice effort.

I am really tempted to book the next ethiopian airlines ticket and relive your journey. The pictures shared with the post also reflect that you truly enjoyed the travel. Great post! I also like the fact that you have covered nuances about the food and entertainment service through the pictures. It helps people know what to expect on their travel by this airline.
