“Cannes Festival”: Daphné Bürki hosting the Culturebox show, Louise Ekland on the red carpet

France Télévisions is refining its system. Less than three weeks before the opening ceremony of the 75th edition of the Cannes Film Festival, presented in access on France 2 by Virginie Efira, the public group has unveiled the cast of its welcome show broadcast daily and live from the Croisette on Culturebox during the fortnight.

“Cannes Festival” live from the Croisette

Daphné Bürki, the face of the early evenings of channel 14, will be at the presentation of the magazine “Cannes Festival” every evening from 7 p.m. to 9 p.m., from Wednesday May 18 to Friday May 20 then from Monday May 23 to Friday May 27 live from the Pantiero , next to the Palais des Festivals. Laure Adler, Camille Diao and, on Friday, Cécile Guthleben, will accompany Daphné Bürki on the set set up below the famous Suquet district. A best-of will be offered in the same slot on Saturday May 21 and Sunday May 22.

The arrival of the Cannes Film Festival on the airwaves of France Télévisions heralds the return of Louise Ekland to channel 14. The British journalist – who notably hosted “Louise counter-attack” on France 4 in 2009 – will walk the red carpet and go up the steps to interview the protagonists of this 75th edition. It will take the air from 6.15 p.m. on franceinfo: before the switchover at 7 p.m. on Culturebox.

On the program for the two-hour show? Duplexes from the red carpet, guests on set, tape recorders on the last 24 hours of the Festival, INA archives, a debrief of the competition as well as a star interview by Augustin Trapenard, who officiates on digital media Brut, another official partner of the event.

Bonus films and relocated France Télévisions programs

France Télévisions had announced, on March 17, that the Culturebox access program, whose name was unknown at the time, would be followed by a film (including two unreleased in the clear). From 10:30 p.m., Culturebox will broadcast the official TV of the Festival (climbing the steps, interviews, press conferences and photo shoots, etc.) until 5 a.m. The 24-hour stream will also be available all day on france.tv and on YouTube.

Other incarnations of France Télévisions will relocate their broadcasts to the Croisette. Karim Rissouli will thus present two numbers of “C ce soir” live from Cannes on Friday May 20 and 27 in the second part of the evening on France 5 and Laurent Delahousse will close the Cannes program during an “8:30 p.m., Saturday” with the Palme d’Or team filmed from the Croisette. “Télématin”, “C à vous, la suite” as well as the news editions of France 2 and France 3 will cover the Festival from Paris with special correspondents in duplex.

The Cannes Film Festival inaugurates this year a memorandum of understanding valid for three years, signed last December with France Télévisions and Brut, replacing Canal +, which has been broadcasting the event since 1993.
