More than 400,000 accreditation badges printed over the last 10 Festival de Cannes

The 68th Festival de Cannes closed on the traditional Palme d’Or award ceremony. This edition is also a reward for Evolis, which contributed again to deliver thousands of accreditation badges during the International Film Festival.

Evolis’ partnership with the system integrator Tech-Event has been ongoing for 10 years now.  Nowadays more than 400,000 badges have been printed. Accreditation is a key point for the prestigious Festival de Cannes.





“Despite all the accreditation requests that we receive, we only accept a limited number of applications after reviewing each profi le in detail”, says Capaldi. 

This process is due to security issues that actually turn out to be another challenge. “Our role is to provide the best access to professionals in the movie industry”. This is why badges are issued across the registration counter to avoid any likely loss or theft when sent by mail. “Some do try to get in at any cost, so we must remain constantly vigilant”, elaborates Capaldi.

“Printing a picture on the badge makes it possible to avoid forgery or lending of the badge. And this is a critical issue since we print only one badge per person”, says Capaldi. 

The partnership originally started with the use of several Pebble printers. Since then, Tech-Event, followed the evolution of Evolis printers and  always noticed a virtually zero failure rate. Tech-Event currently use Quantum from Evolis which personalizes the access control badges. This industrial machine is ideal for large volumes and prints cards in dual-sided mode, mixing and matching  texts, logos, images and high-definition barcodes, in color or monochrome Quantum comes with two detachable and  interchangeable high-capacity hoppers that store up to 500 cards. Performances are optimized with a dazzling 1,000 personalizing cards per hour in monochrome, and 150 cards in color.
