Mot & Chandon will be the champagne of the Festival, and will be enjoyed by guests and VIPs throughout the event, including attendees at the opening gala and fundraising gala dinner.
There will also be a Nebuchadnezzar – 15 litre bottle – of Mot & Chandon on display throughout the Festival for the patrons and VIP guests to sign. The bottle will be auctioned off for the FilmAid charity after the festival.
Hannah McGill, artistic director of the Film Festival, said: "Having exciting new partners like Mot adds extra glamour to the Festival and helps to build our credibility on the international film scene.
"New talent will be rubbing shoulders with established names this year and the Mot partnership will certainly help to find the spirit of discovery."
