May 19, 2017

The Netherlands have received the Special Jury Award for the design of the SEE NL pavilion at the Marché du Film - Cannes International Film Festival.
The jury committee consisted of chairman Pierre Lescure (President of the Cannes International Film Festival), Françoise Delbecq (journalist at Elle magazine), Dominique Vachon (former CEO of Vachon) and Charlie Baum (creator and event organizer). Besides The Netherlands, also Switzerland and Latvia received an award for their pavilion. It is the first time the Marché du Film handed out awards for the design of the pavilions at the Village International.

EYE Film Insitute Netherlands, the Netherlands Film Fund and Het Nieuwe Instituut have joined forces to restyle the Dutch pavilion and offer Dutch design talent a podium during this year's edition of the Cannes International Film Festival. At the invitation of Het Nieuwe Instituut Studio Sabine Marcelis responds to the centenary of the still-revolutionary modern art movement De Stijl in the form of a spatial design that serves as a meeting place for the international film industry. Marcelis combines her own work with the visual language of De Stijl artists like Piet Mondriaan (the movement's best known proponent) and curates it with her own designs and designs by Martin Visser, Gerrit Rietveld and Radboud van Beekum.
