Deauville Festival Of American Film


English Français

Since its creation in 1975, the Deauville American Film Festival has been both showcasing the diversity of American cinema, from major Hollywood productions to independent films, and continuously revealing new talent. It is organised every year by the Le Public Système Cinéma and the Centre International de Deauville, and presents over 100 films to audiences in three different sites: the Centre International de Deauville, the Deauville Lucien Barrière Casino, and the Deauville Le Morny Cinema. The Festival is an event open to everyone, professionals and cinema enthusiasts alike. Follow us and get updates on Facebook and Twitter @DeauvilleUS #Deauville2020

Deauville Film Festival will award Barbet Schroeder

America with a scalpel The Deauville Festival Prize is awarded each year to a filmmaker who has crossed the Atlantic to make a film in the United States, thus materializing a Franco-American bridge resulting from a long artistic tradition. After Jacques Audiard (Les Frères Sisters), Olivier Assayas (Cuban Network), it is Barbet Schroeder that we will honor for this 46th edition, not for a film, but for all of his American work. The mere mention of his name brings forth...

Sandrine Brauer interviewed in Deauville for 50/50 for 2020

Sandrine Brauer is a French Producer one of the many signatories of the 50/50 for 2020 Movement for parity and gender equity in film. For the past few months we have been collectively wondering how to turn a moment into a movement. While French cinema wasn’t shaken by the Weinstein shock wave, it is essential that we move to take concrete action reaching beyond the issue of sexual abuse alone. We believe that the distribution of power needs to be questioned...

Hidden Life by Terrence Malick playing today in Deauville

By Bruno Chatelin in Deauville Each film by Terrence Malick is both a poem and a question mark. This one could have been titled "Why live on". Ask yourself: is our life worth the compromises with values which totally hurt your beliefs and your faith. According to film scholar Lloyd Michaels, the director's primary themes include "the isolated individual's desire for transcendence amidst established social institutions, the grandeur and untouched beauty of nature, th...

American Skin stands as a very strong contender for the audience award in Deauville

The film received a 10 minutes long standing ovation at the gala screening, which put Nate Parker in tears. It is an eye opener on the current state of modern racism in the USA, expressed and judged by both sides (a touch of Rashomon). In my views it is a "movie that matters" challenging the way police forces are trained to do their job. My other winning choices so far would be SKIN and Peanut Butter Falcon   Directors could not be there and sent us a video postcard. Their ...
