The Champs-Elysées Film Festival: the annual meeting of French and American cinema
Created in 2012 by Sophie Dulac, The Champs-Élysées Film Festival is a film festival dedicated to French and American films, offering a week of screenings and special events entirely dedicated to the public. As the name suggests, the films will be projected in cinemas in or close to the Champs-Elysees: UGC Georges V, Balzac, The Lincoln, Publicis Cinémas Gaumont Embassy, Gaumont Marignan, and MK2 Grand Palais.
The 4th edition of the Champs-Elysées Film Festival will be held from 10 to 16 June 2015 in Paris, where more than sixty films will be presented, including several big premieres in the presence of the film crews.
Three selections of French and American films are in competition: 8 American long independent films, 9 American short films and 13 French short films.
For the 4th edition, the festival opens two new thematic and cross sections: Urban Atmospheres and Imaginary Americans. The principle of the two sections is to open a field of thought around a given theme and compare the different cinematic treatments of the topic.
