Bringing the Festival de Cannes to life for new audiences around the world
Brut. is proud to be partnering up with France Télévisions to raise the profile and deepen the impact of the world's greatest film festival. Brut. is a 100% digital media channel distributed across international platforms with 450 million viewers in 100 countries around the world, notably among 18- to 34-year-olds looking to stay abreast of the latest news and enjoy down-time differently.
The idea is to increase the event's visibility among the younger generations throughout the world, raising its profile across a community with an eclectic range of interests but a shared appreciation for openness and values such as diversity, power balances, gender identity, love, social responsibility, and more: values that the films at Cannes all share too, irrespective of their country of origin.
To do so, Brut. offers a fresh editorial line embodied by its in-house journalists and a stable of content creators who play an active role in enacting change.
Brut. will cover the Opening and Closing Ceremonies, the red carpet, the photocalls and the press conferences with content adapted to social media platforms such as Tik Tok, Snapchat, Instagram, Facebook, and Twitter. Augustin Trapenard will serve up a long-form interview every day based on the latest film news. The Brut. reporters will create exclusive content focused on the event and the talent that goes into bringing the Festival to life both on and off the stage.
Brut. will also be launching its Creator programme, a brand-new editorial scheme designed to connect the younger generations with the Festival de Cannes' challenging and thought-provoking films in a unique opportunity that cuts straight to the heart of the Cannes experience: content creators from around the world invited by Brut. and given carte blanche to cover the Festival as they see fit.
