CALVIN KLEIN | VENUE SCOUTING + MANAGEMENT

Over the course of four consecutive years, BCG worked with Calvin Klein in partnership with Independent Filmmaker Project on their annual Women in Film event during the Cannes Film Festival. Challenged to procure unique, first-time venues that did not veer far off the Croisette, BCG delivered spectacular distinctive locales that set the stage for unforgettable parties, including a distinguished private French estate overlooking Cannes and the Mediterranean Sea. The expansive, multi-story estate boasted a modern, stone façade with a pristine outdoor space that included an azure-hued pool amidst acres of lush greenery. That year’s event was made even more special with a live outdoor performance by chart-topping band, Haim.

ROMA | VENUE SCOUTING + MANAGEMENT

BCG secured the impressive and highly coveted Serpentine Gallery installation of Bjarke Ingels Unzipped for NETFLIX’s celebration of Roma at the Toronto International Film Festival, then contending for the 2019 Academy Award for Best Picture, which it eventually won. The evening cocktail event was the first event to be hosted at this expansive temporary installation in Toronto, which was complemented with a monumental Roma structure positioned nearby that mirrored the metallic finish of Unzipped and proved a compelling photo backdrop for guests.

Beautiful greenery, colorful floral arrangements and ambient candles were found throughout the space along with branded decor elements. Upon entry, guests were greeted by a live string quartet who performed some of the traditional Mexican songs featured in the film. Inside guests enjoyed custom cocktails and canapés while DJ Zen Freeman served up crowd favorites.

SUSPIRIA | VENUE SCOUTING + MANAGEMENT

BCG scouted unique venues for Amazon Studios’ Suspiria screening at the Venice Film Festival, ultimately moving forward with Conservatorio di Musica Benedetto Marcello di Venezia,  a renowned music conservatory housed within a historic, 17th-century Venetian palace. The breathtaking venue boasts an intricate façade, courtyards inspired by baroque architecture, and houses statues and paintings within. The evening of the event, a crimson red hue was employed throughout the venue, reflecting the film’s horror-genre and creating a dramatic backdrop for the one hundred guests seated dinner. Candles and lavish settings adorned tables that stretched the length of the venue and a decadent five-course menu was served.
