68th Venice International Film Festival
Jaeger-LeCoultre celebrates art and artisanship
From August 31st to September 10th, 2011 on the occasion of the 68th Venice International Film Festival organized by the Biennale di Venezia, the famous “Mostra” which Jaeger-LeCoultre has been sponsoring for seven consecutive years, the brand will unveil its own dream cast of exceptional watchmaking creations.

Ten star-studded nights will precede the Venice Film Festival’s awards ceremony and, with the support of the many celebrities gracing the red carpet, Jaeger-LeCoultre will finance ten operations at the Salam Centre for cardiac surgery, which was opened by the Emergency humanitarian organization near Khartoum, Sudan. As a symbol of this charity Jaeger-LeCoultre engraved its Reverso watch with a Salam Centre symbol: a red heart. Seeing a hand (of an artist wearing the watch) on a heart on the Festival’s red carpet is a symbol of the brand’s adhesion to the Salam Centre support project.
This year’s “Jaeger-LeCoultre Glory to the Filmmaker Award” will honour Al Pacino, the exceptional personality presenting his third movie in Venice.
