Cannes.on.Cyber Project Description

Let me introduce you to cannes.on.cyber. It is a new Daily Magazine, dedicated to the Cannes Film Festival, available freely to any Internet user in the World during the 1995 Cannes Film Festival. As you might already know, the INTERNET is the fastest growing new Media with already 30 millions users around the world, growing at 8% per month. Everyday, new services are proposed to these users. The biggest International Companies (Coca-Cola, MGM, Disney, AT&T, Ford, Sony, etc) but also the smallest ones (independent producers, local artists) are already providing the Internet with their own Information. Why not you?

Take the Opportunity of the Cannes Film Festival to advertise the movies you are in charge of over the Internet, reaching instantaneously a potential 30 million people all over the world, just like you would advertise the same movies in a Daily Issue of Screen International or Variety. It is as simple and at least as efficient. For its first year, "cannes.on.cyber" is proposing special Advertisement Packages (see below) designed to fit the needs and the budget of professionals like yourself. Show your customers that you are "Wired" and give a chance to movie fans around the world to discover before anybody else the movies that everyone will be talking about in a few weeks. Get yourself on the Internet with "cannes.on.cyber".

What is "Cannes.on.Cyber"?

"cannes.on.cyber" is a project jointly developed by Etienne BARRAL and CYBER TECHNOLOGIES INTERNATIONAL (a Japanese Internet Provider) and supported by the Japanese Camera Maker Canon inc., Air France, Doors (the new monthly of the Asahi Press Group), French Photo Agency Imapress, Silicon Graphics International and Internet Way (a French Internet Provider).

From May 17th until May 29th, French Movie Journalist based in Japan Etienne BARRAL and a crew of five persons in Cannes will cover the Cannes Festival’s up-to-date news. Articles, movie reviews, interviews with Actors and Film Makers, parties, gossips about the movie world and the Festival day’s schedule will be accessible in three languages (English, French, Japanese) the very next day at cannes.on.cyber on the World Wide Web. Furthermore, a certain number of Usenet Newsgroups will also be specially created in every supported language so that Usenet users can also get direct access to the Cannes Film Festival daily updated news.

Then, the 30 million Internet users throughout the world will have a chance to access not only text but also pictures taken with two professional Digital Cameras provided by Canon Inc., and beamed instantly to the Internet. cannes.on.cyber will be a unique way for movie fans to tune in every day to breaking movie news.

With the extensive use of Internet and state of the art Digital Cameras, cannes.on.cyber will be able to provide Internet readers with LIVE information and pictures about the Cannes Film Festival even before newspapers and TV.

Every day, 30 pages worth of Cannes Film Festival Related information will be provided on the Internet, with at least 30 to 50 new photos. We also plan special events like inviting Movie Directors and Actors in Cannes to design their own "home-Page" over the Internet, A Cyber-Exposition of the Movie Stars of the 50’s and 60’s that came to Cannes for the promotion of their film, Daily-updated Pictographs showing the Attendance and the History of the Festival over the years, Cover-specials, video-clips, exclusive interviews, and much more
