MPC ADELAIDE HAS A STRONG SHOWING AT THIS YEAR’S CANNES INTERNATIONAL FILM FESTIVAL

Two of MPC Adelaide’s most recent projects premiered at this year’s Cannes International Film Festival. 

Elvis, directed by Australia’s own Baz Luhrmann, is a new music-based biopic that chronicles the star’s career highs and lows. MPC Adelaide was thrilled to be involved in crafting several sequences to help bring some of Elvis’s iconic performances to the big screen. You can read more about MPC’s work on Elvis here


Also released was Three Thousand Years of Longing, by fellow Australian director George Miller. The MPC Adelaide team contributed to several scenes for the Sydney-based production, which features the Oscar-winning Tilda Swinton, and the Oscar-nominated Idris Elba.

The 75th edition of the prestigious Cannes International Film Festival took place this year from May 17 – 28. It is one of the most publicized events in the world and a hugely important film festival in terms of international influence. 

The whole of the Adelaide team and I are extremely proud to have had this opportunity to contribute to both of these incredible projects, Australia is, and will continue to be, a great country to film, produce, and post for major movies to be seen on a global stage.”

Alexandra Daunt Watney, Senior Vice President at MPC Adelaide
