21 new companies bunk at Cannes’ Riviera

Hotel to ready to house festival participants

With the AFM halfway over, the Cannes Market looms large, and 21 new sales and distribution companies have signed on to conduct business in the Riviera Hotel.

U.S. companies to book space at the Riviera complex are Phaedra Intl., Porchlight, Quantum, Bauer Martinez Studios, EBS, Menemsha, Annex Entertainment and Highland Crest. New companies from Europe are M6 Pathe Intl., Movie System, TV5, Euroarts, Luz Pictures and BV Intl. Pictures. New Asian companies include the Hong Kong Trade Development Council, which has reserved a major space to accommodate five Hong Kong-based sales companies: Golden Harvest, China Star, Golden Harbor, Golden Sun Film and IFD Film. These shingles join Hong Kong’s Golden Network and Korea’s Tube Entertainment and Cinema Service.

Established at last years’ Cannes festival and market, the Riviera houses roughly one third of all sales companies doing business at the market. Hotel also has offices for Lions Gate Films Intl., FTD (President Films and Artbox), StudioCanal, FilmFour Intl., Bavaria Films Intl., Sogepaq Intl., Telepool, MDP Worldwide and Grupo Novo de Cinema e Television.

In addition to distributors, the hotel will house such organizations as Independent Feature Project, American Film Marketing Assn., ACE and La Biennale Di Venezia, as well as the national film promotion outlets such as the Austrian Film Commission, Eurimages, Greek Film Center, Finnish Film Foundation, Flanders Image and Sovexportfilm.

“There was a need at Cannes to help buyers and sellers conduct their business with ease, under one roof,” said Jerome Paillard, Cannes market’s executive director. “The success of the Riviera last year has opened people’s eyes more clearly to this need, especially as we continue to improve the facilities the Riviera has to offer.”

The Riviera combines sales offices, eight screening theaters, a restaurant and a business club.
