The Rendez-Vous with Cinema in Deauville from 4-13 September 2020
The organisation of the Deauville American Film Festival was put on hold following the recent extraordinary events. We are delighted to announce that the 46th edition of the Deauville American Film Festival will take place as expected from the 4th-13th September.
The Festival is back on track and is reinventing itself with some exceptional announcements.
- Vanessa Paradis: President of the Jury. The singer, actress and model, so cherished by the French public, will honor us by presiding over the jury who will watch the films from the official selection and award the Grand Prix on the 12th September.
- Tribute to Kirk Douglas, who left us this year aged 103. This outstanding actor, producer, film director and writer has a special relationship with the Film Festival: He has come twice, in 1978 and in 1999. This year’s poster will therefore honor one of greatest of American Cinema.
- Deauville wishes to support the Cinema Industry, deeply affected by the health crisis. The Festival will open its doors to two other international events: The Cannes Film Festival and The Annecy International Animation Film Festival.
The Festival continues to evolve and express its desire to celebrate the reunion between Cinema and public. Thanks to its modern design and intuitive navigation, the elegant new website carries with it a message for the Festival: openness to the public, with simplicity and generosity.
