Luxury Cannes French Riviera Hotel Hosts the 'Dark Room' by Belvedere Film Festival After Party

JW Marriott Cannes Hotel's Terrace Will Become an Exclusive Invite Only After Party

CANNES, FRANCE--(Marketwire - May 16, 2012) - Adding excitement and mystique to the already dynamic Festival de Cannes, an after party named "Dark Room" will take up quarters within one of the leading hotel event venues in Cannes unveiling an area as a Studio Shoot, a terrace bar concept and a gallery lounge May 16-27, 2012.

The "Dark Room by Belvedere" will add a totally unique and original twist to the 65th Cannes Film Festival taking up quarters at the JW Marriott, one of the premier luxury suite hotels in Cannes.

The Studio Shoot will be a modern and contemporary photography studio made available (by invitation only) to personalities and leaders in Cannes before photographer Eric Mercier, whose work will also be highlighted in the Dark Room's Gallery.

Taking advantage of the pristine atmosphere offered by this opulent JW Marriott La Croisette Cannes hotel with terrace space, Belvedere Vodka's Terrace Bar Concept will be dedicated to tasting cocktails while a resident DJ shares programming. In this one-of-a-kind setting, the world of photography will accent the forms of the event. From bar accessories and the shooting of unusual guests and bartenders in the full exercise of their trade, to the creation of cocktails, the shutter will tell the story as guests gather to celebrate the works of the day. Additionally, Belvedere Vodka mixologists have created five special cocktails to be enjoyed on the Belvedere by Darkroom terrace. Aptly named "The Dark Room", "The Master," "The Argentique," "The Flash" and "the negative," these drinks will add to the sensationalism of this exclusive Cannes Film Festival gathering placing.

Utilizing the spacious rooftop terrace at this JW Marriott Cannes French Riviera hotel, the Dark Room by Belvedere will also include The Lounge; a space devoted to relaxation.

Staying true to its cultural and artistic heritage, the JW Marriott is an ideal location for special events during this international festival and throughout the year as world travelers utilize the hotel's state-of-the-art conference rooms, multi-functional event space and 820-seat auditorium. Featuring a staff of dedicated event managers and professional catering service with exquisite menus, this sophisticated hotel also offers an array of venues featuring views of the Mediterranean Sea, an ideal backdrop for elegant weddings and social affairs.
