This year marks the first in which Swiss luxury watch manufacturer IWC Schaffhausen debuted as an official partner of the festival du Film Francophone d’Angoulême, which was held in Angoulême, France, from 25 to 30 August. IWC CEO Georges Kern presented Emmanuel Finkiel from France with the “Valois IWC du Réalisateur” for his film “Je ne suis pas un salaud”. At a gala dinner hosted under the motto “Pour l’amour du cinéma” approximately 100 VIP guests and global stars such as Christopher Lambert and Vincent Lindon celebrated the creativity and diversity of French-speaking cinema. To date, IWC Schaffhausen has supported well-known festivals from as far afield as Beijing, New York, Zurich, London and Dubai.
