Park Circus is pleased to announce that it will have five classic films feature in the line-up at Festival de Cannes 2017.
Restorations of All That Jazz and Blow-Up feature in the Cannes Classics Official Selection, while Bugsy Malone, Saturday Night Fever and Bad Boys will screen in the special surroundings of Cinéma de la Plage.
Reflecting on the line-up, Park Circus CEO Nick Varley commented:
In the year that Cannes celebrates its 70th anniversary and looks back at the history of cinema, Park Circus is again pleased to have a significant presence in the Cannes Classics line-up. Together with our studio partners we are privileged to present this diverse and popular selection of titles. We also look forward to meeting our many exhibition and distribution partners in Cannes who we are pleased to partner with as we get these wonderful films back on big screens worldwide.
All That Jazz has been restored in 4K by Twentieth Century Fox and the Academy Film Archive in collaboration with The Film Foundation. It returns to Cannes after having won the Palme d'Or in 1980. The film sees acclaimed choreographer and director Bob Fosse turn to his own life story in a semi-autobiographical fantasy that follows a self-destructive, substance-fuelled artist struggling to bring his Broadway show to the stage and his Hollywood movie to the screen.
Blow-Up is presented in a new restoration by Criterion, Cineteca di Bologna and Instituto Lucé - Cinecittà, in collaboration with Warner Bros and Park Circus. It returns to Cannes 50 years after winning the Palme d'Or in 1967. The story of a fashion photographer who believes he has unwittingly captured a murder on film, Antonioni's English language debut has the director effortlessly transpose his distinctly European visual flair and narrative approach into the context of swinging sixties London.
