A few weeks back, we announced that we’re going to be attending/covering the 2010 Cannes Film Festival thanks to Stella Artois. We also revealed that that you too would have a chance to join us in France, as Stella was holding a contest to send one lucky person to the festival for a weekend.
The whole bit revolves around Stella’s new marketing campaign showcasing Jacques d’Azur, the French bon-vivant who is offering his lavish weekend. As today is the last day to enter the contest and win a trip to Cannes, we have one more final video entitled “In Memory Of Jacques d’Azur, Legend and King of Cannes, 1939-2010″ to share with you, as a reminder that this will be your last chance to enter the contest. To enter, all you need to do is visit StellaArtois.com, connect the contest with your Facebook account, and then “add your name to the will.” Check out the final video and more information on the contest embedded after the jump!
Slashfilm.com and Firstshowing.net are being sponsored by Stella Artois at this year’s Cannes Film Festival.
Jacques d’Azur (a fictional character, I think?) is a full time bon-vivant known for his “work” on the red carpets and swimming pools of the French Riviera. He quickly became a legend of Cannes and, over time, his legend grew. Unfortunately he has gone missing, but his last will and testament included an heir to his lavish weekend at the Cannes Film Festival, but the name is illegible, so this is your chance to become the heir.
Due to state laws, California residents cannot enter, but everyone else over the age of 21 should head to StellaArtois.com to enter now.
