FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
DUBLIN — Over and Above, one of the world’s leading interior and exhibition design companies, reported on its work at the most recent Cannes Film Festival. Engaged by the Irish Film Board to design and produce the Irish Pavilion at the Festival, Over and Above contributed significantly to the atmosphere and success of the world-class event.
With the Irish Film Board appearing at Cannes in support of Jury Prize winner The Lobster, a dystopian feature starring Colin Farrell, Rachel Weisz, and Léa Seydoux, the Over and Above-designed and provided pavilion was a popular destination for festival goers. As a top brand identity design and exhibition specialist, Over and Above regularly works with important clients like the Irish Film Board to ensure that their brands and offerings are showcased in powerful, engaging ways at major events like the Cannes Film Festival and others.
“Of all the world’s film festivals, Cannes is the most historic, prestigious, and exciting,” Over and Above Chief Operating Officer Emer Sherlock said, “That’s why it was such an honour to work with the Irish Film Board on the design and construction of the Irish Pavilion at the most recent festival. It was incredible to see Yorgos Lanthimos’s English-language debut The Lobster take home the Jury Prize and to be there in support of Element Pictures, one of Ireland’s home-grown success stories in the spheres of film and television.”
Since its founding just after World War II, an annual film festival held in the French Riviera town of Cannes has attracted attention from all corners of the world. Showcasing the most daring and significant features that crop up across the globe every year, the Cannes Film Festival is regarded by many as one of the most glamorous and momentous regular events anywhere and in any field.
The Irish Film Board is Ireland’s national film development agency, tasked with supporting worthy films, television productions, and animation, and encouraging talented artists and producers from elsewhere to take advantage of what the country has to offer. The Board was a key source of support for 2015’s The Lobster, the English-language directorial debut of famed Greek filmmaker Yorgos Lanthimos and one of Ireland-based Element Pictures’ most eagerly anticipated productions yet.
Over and Above was contracted by the Irish Film Board to design and build the Irish Pavilion at the Festival, a project that was judged a resounding success by all involved. Strategically accounting for the Film Board’s brand identity and particular goals at the Festival, Over and Above employed its distinctively collaborative process to ensure that all goals were met and desired results materialized.
