Bruno Chatelin déclare sa candidature à la Présidence d'uniFrance Puisqu’il s’agit de promouvoir le cinéma et la France j’ai pensé que cette mission imposante et enthousiasmante pourrait être confiée à un expert de la communication et du numérique?
L’édifice uniFrance est solide et reconnu, et les équipes extrêmement bien rodées, néanmoins en matière de communication et de promotion tout est perfectible et il n’y a d’autre limite que l’énergie (et le budget), j’ai envie d’apporter la mienne avec toute la créativité dont on me fait le crédit.
Ce qui m’a toujours motivé pourrait une fois de plus être un atout au service des ventes et de la promotion du film : la recherche de l’innovation, de l’optimisation, des synergies… du beau geste, et du résultat.
