ARRI technology behind the scenes of Cannes 2022


From May 17 to 28, the who's who of the movie industry came together at the 75th Festival de Cannes. As a global technology leader in the cinematography and broadcast business, ARRI was widely present at the Croisette and behind the scenes, including the long-standing partnership with the Directors' Fortnight section. For the first time, ARRI equipped two photo call locations with LED fixtures. The company also hosted the ARRI Happy Hour on Quinzaine beach and sponsored two CST awards in Cannes. Working directly with industry professionals on a daily basis, ARRI's focus in Cannes lies on building and maintaining close relationships with filmmakers, directors, and cinematographers.

In 2022, more than 90 percent of films competing for Best Picture in the Main Competition utilized ARRI equipment-including Palme d'Or winner Triangle of Sadness or Jury Prize winners EO and Le otto montagne. In fact, the vast majority of all feature films shown in Cannes were captured or illuminated with ARRI cameras, lenses, or lights-not only in the Main Competition, but also in Un Certain Regard, Directors Fortnight, and Critic's Week. Many of the participating productions were serviced and equipped by ARRI Rental.

In 2022, Natasza Chroscicki, Managing Director ARRI France & Business Development Director ARRI Mediterranean, joined one of the most prestigious selection committees in Cannes. I'm extremely honored and excited to be a member of the jury of Camera d'Or, said Chroscicki. During the festival, the Camera d'Or jury chooses the best first feature film presented in the various sections. This year, they awarded War Pony by directors Riley Keough and Gina Gammell. It was shot by DP David Gallego with the ALEXA XT: This is an incredible story that we wanted to capture in the most natural way. I always feel that the ALEXA and Panavision lenses are a good combination that allows me to feel the proximity between the characters in their own spaces, Gallego says.

The top prize at Cannes, the Palme d'Or, went to director Ruben stlund for his black comedy Triangle of Sadness. DP Fredrik Wenzel comments on using ARRI equipment for the feature: I chose to shoot Triangle of Sadness' on the ALEXA LF because I know how much manipulation Ruben is doing on the images afterwards. There are close to zero images in the final film that haven't been manipulated in any way. Ruben stitches different takes together. Or he adds a detail, like a piece of cloth hanging over a chair. Or he extends the image and makes it wider. The list is endless.

The Grand Prize was jointly awarded to Close (Director: Lukas Dhont, DP: Frank van den Eeden) and Stars at Noon (Director: Claire Denis, DP: Eric Gautier,) both shot with the ALEXA Mini. ARRI cameras were also behind the joint Jury Prize winners EO (directed by Jerzy Skolimowski, cinematography by Michal Dymek) and Le otto montagne by Charlotte Vandermeersch and Felix Van Groeningen. DP on this project was Ruben Impens. The Grand Prize in the Un Certain Regard section was given to Les pires ( The Worst Ones ), directed by Lise Akoka and Romane Gueret and captured by DP Eric Dumont with the ALEXA Mini. Also shot with the ALEXA Mini was Joyland by director Saim Sadiq and cinematographer Joe Saade, which was awarded the Jury Prize of Un Certain regard.

Following a longstanding tradition, ARRI and ARRI Rental welcomed several hundred guests to an inspiring evening of conversations and networking on the Plage Quinzaine in collaboration with Directors Fortnight. Customers, partners, and friends from all over the world celebrated the artistry of cinema at the ARRI Happy Hour, including numerous cinematographers from Cannes competition films.

During the festival, ARRI equipment, including AMIRA and ALEXA Mini LF cameras with Alura Zoom lenses were on hand to livestream interviews and Q&A sessions after each screening in the 54th Directors Fortnight edition. To learn more, watch a short video shown at the Directors' Fortnight closing ceremony, highlighting snippets from filmmakers and shot on ARRI equipment. Orbiter, SkyPanels, and L7-C also provided excellent lighting for photo calls in two different locations at Plage Quinzaine and the JW Marriott Hotel. When we set-up the material, it was like Christmas day. The photographers are thrilled by this professional light. They love it, said Xavier Meyer, Technical Manager Quinzaine des R alisateurs.
