Sennheiser headphones delivered the ultimate listening experience during the 25th Anniversary of the American Pavilion, International Village at Cannes Film Festival 2013

Sennheiser delivered Premium Sound and Wireless Innovation to The American Pavilion at the Cannes International Film Festival 2013, which took place 15th May - 26th May 2013. The American Pavilion, situated in the International Village, where all countries had representatives and information regarding their countries film industry. Audiences listened to Interviews with Top Entertainment Talent on Sennheiser Wireless Headphones, during the schedule that The American Pavilion had showcased during their special year in which they celebrated their 25th Anniversary in Cannes.

Sennheiser headphones are a superb tool of vital and innovative technological equipment for the modern and very busy filmmaker. They are utilised during the production stages of every film, from on location, Foley recording, mixing in in the studio, to of course other parts of the filmmaking process.

Audio specialist Sennheiser supported The American Pavilion at the Cannes International Film Festival 2013 during its Conference Series this year in Cannes, by providing their Sennheiser RS 120 wireless headphones. The Conference Series which featured panels and one–on–one interviews with the film industry’s leading talent and entertainment personalities, during the 12–day festival, which is known internationally as being the most high profile event in the film industry. With that in mind audiences were able to listen to The American Pavilion Conference Series through Sennheiser wireless headphones, for a true 100% quality experience. This complemented the scenic surrounds of the French Riviera with sea views, yachts and mountains and of course the high caliber of Cannes Film Festival 2013.

I was able to test run the Sennheiser RS 120 wireless headphones for myself with the Company's representative in attendance. Truly for myself in the film industry, the listening experience far exceeded the expected standard, and excluded all external sound.

These headphones were utilised by Festival attendees whilst in attendance at the American Pavilion, relaxing with a root beer, catching up on some work in the American Pavilion, or  simply enjoying the view of the beach and surrounding backdrop scenery, whilst educating oneself with the interesting program of interviews etc, that the American Pavilion provided. These headphones can be used not only in a static position as one would expect in the normal run of things, but one was able to roam freely around the American Pavilion tent grounds and enjoy the same pristine, clear high quality listening experience, without background noise interference.

The American Pavilion Conference Series featured industry panels each day that focused on topics like film finance, acquisitions, producing and film and technology. The interactive sessions were moderated by well–known entertainment journalists and routinely attract the top names in entertainment. In prior years, guests have included Francis Ford Coppola, Terry Gilliam, Martin Scorcese, Robert Duvall, Kevin Kline, Tommy Lee Jones, Jude Law, Colin Firth, Anjelica Huston, James Cameron and many others. This years guests included Randy Quaid, Stephen Frears, and Film Industry seminars in focus with renown speakers from within the film industry.

The American Pavilion asked Sennheiser to provide support in Cannes after reading about its activation during SXSW with Paste Magazine this past March, in which the company hosted three days of interviews with leading content creators such as Fred Armisen of SNL, LeVar Burton of Star Trek, editor in chief of Marvel Comics Alex Alonso, and others. During this activation, fans and attendees were able to listen to interview content anywhere on the activation grounds, while donning Sennheiser wireless headphones.
