Conque 2018, Latin America’s number one comic and entertainment convention was supported by Christie projection. The event, which was attended by 30,000 people, just ended in Queretaro City, Mexico.
Conque 2018 featured more than 100 artists, 40 hours of presentations and conferences, films, live artists drawing animations and 50 hours of workshops. All the projected events took place at the Teatro Metropolitano, which is equipped with a Christie CP2230 DLP cinema projector.
Luis Gantus, founder of Conque and the content director for Conque 2018 said, “We heard nothing but good things about Christie at CinemaCon and at some local events like the Chichén Itzá Light and Sound Show. And the quality and power of the Christie projector lived up to its reputation, giving attendees at Conque 2018 a truly unique experience: brilliant, moving, fun. As a producer, I had never had the opportunity before to present such powerful contents.”
The Christie projector made the whole Teatro Metropolitano buzz with excitement with exclusive projects from Netflix, Universal Pictures, Sony Pictures, Warner Brothers, Genco Japan and others. It was also used to screen works by Robert Valley, nominated for an Academy Award for the short film Pear, Cider and Cigarettes.
Gantus added, “At the exclusive presentation of Universal Pictures, the producer Jason Blum — one of the world’s most important cinema producers — presented the trailer for Halloween 5 in cinema format, with the server handing content ingest and then deleting it after the presentation. Christie got huge kudos from Universal, and several distributors gave us their commitment to bring exclusive material to Conque, once they knew Christie was on board the event.”
Ernesto Armus, director of Christie Mexico said, “We are proud to support the Mexican entertainment market and film distributors, to help them make their presentations to the highest standards of quality expected at top international events. Festivals from all over the world place their trust in Christie to display the creative visions of artist on their screens with the best digital projection technology.”
