For the past twenty five years, Moët & Chandon has celebrated Hollywood's leading filmmakers as the official champagne of the Golden Globe Awards. To mark this special anniversary, Moët has established an annual fund to give back to the creative community. The fund was created to support the next generation of Hollywood. The Moët Moment Film Festival Competition invites aspiring filmmakers to create and submit 30-60 second films that will be viewed by a panel of notable members of the film community, including Golden Globe winning actress Gina Rodriguez, producer David Guillod, Brio Entertainment Partner Rachel Sheedy, CAA agent Ryan Tarpley and We Are From LA – the award winning directors of Pharrell Williams's interactive 24-hour music video for Happy.
"We are thrilled to support the next generation of filmmakers as we celebrate Moët's quarter century at the Golden Globes," said Thomas Bouleuc, Vice President of Moët & Chandon. "Moët has a rich history with cinema, and we are delighted to bring exposure and support to the career of a future Hollywood success."
In its inaugural year, the festival's theme is Capture the Now, which is about seizing all the experiences in one's life and living with spontaneity.
"To me, Moët embodies the best of Hollywood glamour," said Gina Rodriguez. "There's no better way to mark your success than with a glass of bubbly and I am so pleased to help Moët shine a spotlight on these emerging talents."
After submissions close on January 4, 2016, 25 finalists will be selected by the panel and featured in a 25-hour-long online film festival, where people around the world will be encouraged to watch and vote for their favourite film. Determined by the board, one outstanding filmmaker will be selected from these finalists to receive a $25,000 filmmaking grant and a trip for two to the 73rd Annual Golden Globe Awards in 2016 as Moët's special guests.
Moët & Chandon will toast the 73rd Annual Golden Globe Awards with over 1,500 Moët & Chandon Impérial minis, 125 cases of Moët & Chandon 2004 Grand Vintage Brut and Moet Rosé Impérial magnums and 500 cocktails featuring Moët & Chandon Impérial. In the last quarter century almost 200,000 glasses of Moët have been raised in celebration of hundreds of Hollywood Golden Globes winners.
