Having already been awarded 4 times in Hollywood; in 1964, 1989 and 2009 by the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences and again in 2012 by the Society of Camera Operators, Angénieux zoom lenses are acclaimed worldwide by the most demanding image professionals whether shooting for feature films, commercials, television series or documentaries.
With its exceptional international reputation, it is befitting that the Angénieux brand wished to associate itself with the most prestigious Film Festival in the world, clearly reaffirming its desire to support cinematography.
Through its presence at Festivals, Angénieux remains closer to the entire film community: producers, directors, actors and cinematographers to understand the constant evolutions of film-making and develop products that best meet artistic, technical and economic issues in production.
“It’s a great achievement and a great honor for Thales Angénieux to be a partner of such a prestigious cinema event as the Festival de Cannes. Lenses are completely part of the quality of movies. As Official Partner and Technical Partner, it is a kind of recognition we wished to give to all the Directors of Photography who all around the world regularly use our zoom lenses on production sets and know what is the Angénieux Optimo quality.” said Pierre Andurand President and CEO of Thales Angénieux.
