Cannes Film Festival 2017: gallereplay partners up with CNN

The 70th Cannes Film Festival is underway! To mark this special anniversary edition, gallereplay is creating a series of cinemagraphs in collaboration with CNN Style.

This week we’re pleased to announce a special partnership with one of the world’s most respected news networks: CNN. Our first collaboration will center around the 70th Cannes Film Festival, which is being held on the Côte D’Azur from May 17-28. We’ll be bringing a little sparkle to CNN’s coverage of the prestigious cinema event by creating a series of “living photographs.”

Footage captured on location by CNN Style – the news network’s fashion, arts and lifestyle programme – will be crafted into cinemagraphs by our team here in Berlin. They will then be published on CNN and gallereplay’s social media channels, as well as on the CNN Style website throughout the duration of the festival.

“We’re excited to be adding cinemagraphs to our coverage of Cannes this year and to offer something a little different” says CNN Style’s Senior Producer, Lianne Turner. “They’re a great way to capture the glamour of the festival and bring the event to life for our digital audience.”

For us here at gallereplay the project marks an opportunity to introduce cinemagraphs to a news audience. We’ve created cinemagraphs for a range of brands and advertising campaigns in the past. This is the first time we’ll be producing them in a journalistic context with a tight turn-around time. We’re looking forward to the challenge and hope to spread the medium to a wider audience via CNN’s digital channels.

The cinemagraphs created will offer digital audiences a range of impressions: from stars posing for paparazzis on the red carpet, to a behind-the-scenes look at the glamorous after-show parties, and close-ups of cinema legends. Stay tuned for more!
