British Film Institute launches Cannes Film Festival event tender

The British Film Institute (BFI) is inviting event agencies to pitch for a three-year Cannes Film Festival contract worth up to £215,000.

The BFI requires a supplier to build, fit-out and project-manage the UK Film Centre Pavilion at the Cannes Film Festival for 2014, 2015 and 2016.

The brief will include running an information and bookings desk, logistical delivery of an events programme, managing audio-visual recording and photography, applying branding and being brand ‘police’ for the UK film brand, VIP and delegate hospitality, furniture management and pavilion dressing, PR activity and sourcing suppliers.

The pavilion is located in the International Village section at the festival and provides information about the UK film industry to accredited delegates. It serves the role of promoting the UK industry and its business and cultural offerings to the world stage.

It also provides an events programme to highlight and openly discuss relevant key issues to the industry, which includes panel discussions, presentations and Q&As. The pavilion also serves as a venue for meetings and for UK businesses and partners to host events.

The three-year contract is worth between £180,000 and £215,000.

The deadline for proposals is 23 December 2013. Stephen Adams, procurement contracts manager at the BFI is handling the tender process.
