“After The Great Gatsby last year and Madagascar 3 in 2012 we are honored that the most prestigious film festival in the world, the Cannes Film Festival will again rely on XPAND’s active 3D technology,” said Maria Costeira, CEO of XPAND 3D. “Our continued partnership with the Cannes Film Festival also demonstrates the Festival’s commitment to providing the most realistic and immersive 3D experience possible and we are proud to once again bring this experience to audiences in Cannes,” added Mrs. Costeira.

The 2014 official selection will include How to Train Your Dragon 2 and Adieu au langage by Jean-Luc Godard. “Goodbye to Language is an extraordinary modern film. Godard has always been an inventor of forms and narration and his film continues to explore these boundaries. It’s a piece of poetry and we’re truly proud and moved to show it”, said Thierry Frémaux, artistic director and general delegate of the Cannes Film Festival.
