A trove of stars descended upon the legendary Hotel du Cap-Eden-Roc in Cannes, as IWC Schaffhausen partners Cinch’s Quarterly Review in hosting a Filmmakers Dinner along the French Riveria.
The dinner follows previous partnerships with film directors, producers and actors.
Georges Kern, CEO of IWC said: “For years now we have had a passion for film and film-making. We are happy to celebrate it here in Cannes with other like-minded individ-uals and friends of the IWC brand.”
“Every director tells a story with his films. At IWC, storytelling is the basis or, to be more precise, part of the DNA of everything we do,” he adds.
Terry Gilliam, the American-born British screenwriter, film animator, actor and member of the Monty Python comedy troupe, was presented with the prestigious Finch’s Quarterly Filmmaker Award, alongside an IWC watch.
Commenting on the decision, Charles Finch explained: “For years, Terry Gilliam has given us endless demonstrations of his extraordinary talent for film-making, both behind and in front of the camera. It is an enormous pleasure for me to present him with this award,”
The high-calibre guest list included Robert de Niro, Ewan McGregor, Karolina Kurkova, Eric Dane, Paulo Coelho, Tim Jefferies and soul singer Aloe Blacc, who jetted in as the evening’s musical highlight.
