The American Pavilion founder Julie Sisk is proud that the American Pavilion will be plastic-bottle free.  AmPav's Premiere Sponsor SodaStream is joining the Presenting Sponsors American Express and The Peninsula Hotel Group at Cannes Film Festival 2013.

To create a plastic bottle free environment, a range of freshly-made SodaStream flavored drinks will be available complimentary to guests; re-usable eco-friendly bottles will be re-filled for free with either still, sparkling or flavored drinks. A selection of SodaStream cocktails will also be served from the SodaStream SodaBar, an exciting new design aspect of the updated Pavilion for the 25th anniversary celebrations.

 
 “One Billion bottles and cans are trashed every day, the majority ending up in landfills, parks or oceans. What better place than the beautiful beachside location of Cannes to share with the international film industry that people have a choice; that with SodaStream they are empowered to enjoy great-tasting soda without the hazardous waste.”

“We are thrilled to partner with The American Pavilion to help them with their first ever event without the trash from bottles and cans,” commented SodaStream CEO Daniel Birnbaum.

Ampav founder Julie Sisk also stated: “It makes so much sense for us to partner with SodaStream as The Pavilion was the first entity in Cannes to implement recycling, trucking our recyclables to Marseille every other day. We continue to be as green as possible and conscious of the impact we have on the fragile Cannes environment.”

SodaStream is the world leader in home soda making, where consumers turn tap or filtered water into a mouth-watering array of carbonated beverages without the wasteful bottles. SodaStream’s involvement with AMPAV this year allows the Pavilion to be truly free of cans and plastic bottles. This symbolic move means taking over a long-standing sponsorship by Coca-Cola; SodaStream will host the bar at the American Pavilion as the exclusive soft drink and water provider, offering a far better-for-the-planet and better-for-you experience for visitors.

Founded 25 years ago by industry maven Julie Sisk, The American Pavilion is a place where North American film industry professionals gather to share ideas and network during Cannes Film Festival, the largest and most prestigious film festival in the world. Initially created to provide a convenient single meeting space for all the North American film professionals in town, The Pavilion has grown to become the essential hub for the industry off The Croisette, offering membership for professionals, provocative and insightful programming, immersive student programs, Emerging Filmmaker Showcases, and more.
 
Luminaries that have supported The Pavilion over the years include: filmmakers Ron Howard, Francis Ford Coppola, Martin Scorsese, Quentin Tarantino, Wong Kar Wai, Spike Lee, Billy Bob Thornton, and stars Tommy Lee Jones, Sean Penn, Ryan Gosling, James Franco, Michelle Williams, Jessica Chastain, Robert Duvall, and Matt Lauer amongst many others.
