Maurice Lacroix is once again the exclusive watchmaking sponsor of the Zurich Film Festival. Maurice Lacroix brand ambassador and artist Sir Bob Geldof will present the Audience Award on the closing night to the director of the winning film chosen by the festival audience. The prize is nice — of the 36 special limited-edition timepieces designed by Maurice Lacroix for the Festival. The special limited edition (36 timepieces) is based on the Pontos chronograph (a design I really like) and has a hand-decorated automatic movement, 30 minute and 12 hour counters, and a date display.
If you love this watch but not a winners at the film festival, don’t worry because ten of these timepieces are being made available exclusively at Kurz Schmuck und Uhren in Zurich, at a price of 3200 CHF.
The 6th Zurich Film Festival takes place this year from 23rd September to 3rd October. Over 11 days, spectators can see over 70 Swiss, European or world premieres. The programme ranges from Hollywood films to extravagant art-house cinema. Along with premiere parties, panel discussions and Zurich Master Class workshops, personal meetings with actors and directors count among the various visitor highlights at the festival. In 2005, the two current co-directors, Nadja Schildknecht and Karl Spoerri, founded Spoundation Motion Picture GmbH, promoted by the Zurich Film Festival. Last year, over 37,000 film enthusiasts attended the Zurich Film Festival.
