Tasked with creating an unforgettable celebration for a prominent corporate client during the Cannes Film Festival, BCG secured a breathtaking open-air venue on the beach just footsteps from the Riviera. Ribbons of flowing white fabric created an ethereal overhead canopy that afforded glimpses of the sky.

Indulgent French fare and bespoke cocktails were served to guests, who danced late into the evening with the stars sparkling above.

Floor to ceiling barn doors were opened to reveal a dramatic, rustic dining room featuring long tables with white linen, gold-accented place settings and vivid greenery. The celebratory evening for a great cause progressed into a memorable seated dinner where guests were treated to an elevated culinary experience by the renowned Chef Curtis Stone and an entertaining live auction conducted by Billy Harris.

THE HUNGER GAMES: MOCKINGJAY | EVENT DESIGN

BCG was behind the production of an elaborate event to toast the premiere of Lionsgate’s The Hunger Games: Mockingjay – Part 1 which is still lauded as one of the industry’s top Cannes Film Festival parties. Leveraging a global set of contacts, BCG secured an expansive private villa in Cap d’Antibes valued at $200 million euros that had never previously been offered for short-term use. Surrounded by acres of gardens and overlooking the Mediterranean Sea, the interior featured mammoth fireplaces, tapestries, and crystal chandeliers, which the team punctuated with intricate compositions of red roses and the franchise’s signature Mockingjay symbol. Just beyond the villa stood a glass tent the size of half a football field, where guests were greeted by servers extravagantly attired in Capital finery for the main event. The event lasted until the early morning hours as guests enjoyed fine French fare, endless Champagne, and music by French DJ Mike Nouveau.

Guests enjoyed Champagne and specialty cocktails before being seated for a double entrée of braised short rib and roasted branzino and an assortment of decadent lemon tarts, vanilla caramel budino and espresso chocolate cake for dessert. BCG facilitated the evening’s key sponsorships with Chopard, DeLeon Tequila, Fiji Water, and MAC Cosmetics, seamlessly integrating branded elements in the decor.

MISS AMERICANA | EVENT DESIGN

For NETFLIX’s highly anticipated premiere of Miss Americana, BCG designed an elevated culinary experience in honor of the documentary film and its subject, artist Taylor Swift. Complementing the film’s key artwork, a long candlelit dining table with cheerful blush and pink-toned fully-opened blooms was dotted with clusters of creamy dried pampas and delicate bunny tail grass. Soft cashmere blankets with embroidered logos were draped on the chairs and offered to guests as takeaways along with branded stone coasters.

LATE NIGHT | EVENT DESIGN

BCG was tasked with capturing the essence of a late night talk show to bring Amazon Studios’ Late Night to life for the film’s Los Angeles premiere. BCG designed and erected a grand 130-foot Late Night red carpet next to the landmark Orpheum Theater, which included portions of the New York City skyline rendered with dynamic three dimensional and neon elements.

A curated industry guest list and strategically identified groups of fans enjoyed the starlit experience outside before attending the 1,000-person seated screening in the historic venue. Afterwards, guests found themselves transported into a chic NYC nightclub with plush lounge seating, flowing cocktails, and a lavish custom menu from Hollywood favorite, Craig’s restaurant. Tasteful branding and references to a traditional writers’ room were interspersed in the decor, including cast pictures on the walls and an interactive photo booth where guests could act out their talk show host dreams.

FREE SOLO | THEMED EVENT DESIGN

BCG designed a thematic environment to celebrate National Geographic’s premiere of Free Solo during the Toronto International Film Festival. Inspired by rock-climbing and the stunning natural landscapes of the documentary, BCG secured a rooftop venue with natural tones and materials that rose 43 floors from the ground offering panoramic views of the city.

The guest journey began upon entry, as each received a custom braided wristband similar to those worn by adventure enthusiasts. The iconic National Geographic yellow border emblem was incorporated into the decor and cinematic references were found at multiple touchpoints, including a green screen photo booth that transported guests to the facade of El Capitan. The rustic wood walls of the interior were decorated with clusters of framed candid photographs from the film and ivory-toned lounge seating vignettes were adorned with custom National Geographic and Free Solo branded linen pillows. A lap pool spanning the length of the terrace with Free Solo writ large in three-dimensional cut-outs created a made for a social photo opportunity for guests.

UNICORN STORE | THEMED EVENT DESIGN

When filmmaker Brie Larson sought to create an event that would bring guests into the world of the Unicorn Store, BCG designed a whimsical and vibrantly colored wonderland at Sailor in Toronto to connect key themes and the fantastical spirit of the film. A full wall donut display featured endless stacks of the pastry arranged in a rainbow pattern. An eclectic color palette and vivid lighting scheme grounded the decor, which featured a custom, interactive graffiti wall that playfully engaged guests while they enjoyed cocktails and treats. Visually impactful elements bearing Nespresso branding, a sponsor procured by BCG, further contributed to the bespoke atmosphere.

HUSTLERS | THEMED EVENT DESIGN

BCG set a provocative tone for the world premiere party for Hustlers with a dark venue punctuated by moody pink and purple lighting. DJ Charlie B’s ramped up club beats and an illuminated stage complete with a custom stripper pole elicited the seedy, underground world of the film. Lush lounge seating and tailor-made neon pink and jet-black branded pillows reflective of the film’s key art added to the decor. Speakeasy style bartenders served up bespoke cocktails named The Hustle and The Score, courtesy of liquor sponsor Diageo. Secured by BCG along with Audi, the team subtly integrated both brands through key touchpoints.

WONDERSTRUCK | THEMED EVENT DESIGN

For the Cannes Film Festival premiere of Amazon Studios’ feature film Wonderstruck, BCG designed and produced an enchanting environment that captured the film’s magical mood, and secured Perrier-Jouët and Nikki Beach Club as event sponsors. Just as the film interlaced two stories and two eras, the space embodied the essence of the roaring 1920s combined with a retro 1970’s feel. Jazz-age furnishings and ornate serving-ware were enlivened by Spring florals and pops of retro orange throughout the room. An impressive bar backdrop featuring black and white imagery borrowed from key film art provided a dramatic focal point. Guests boogied to a custom 1970’s playlist and enjoyed decadent sweets and colorful seasonal cocktails served by waitstaff in period-appropriate, braided boater hats and Gatsby-inspired outfits.
