City of Lights, city of angels 10th celebration of french film in LA


“La Doublure” (The Valet), Francis Veber’s affectionately funny portrayal of love and deceit, starring Daniel Auteuil and Kristen Scott-Thomas, will have its International Premiere at City of Lights, City of Angels Film Festival on Monday, April 3, 2006, five days after its Paris premiere. The festival’s closing night World Premiere will be Eric Tolédano & Olivier Nakache’s “Ces Jours Heureux” (Those Happy Days). Both evening films will feature a Q&A with the writer-directors. Danièle Thompson’s Fauteuils d’Orchestre has been scheduled as an additional, special anniversary film.

The 10th Anniversary issue of the festival will feature a world premiere, two international premieres, five North American premieres, one U.S. premiere, four west coast premieres and five Los Angeles premieres by such popular writer-directors as Maurice Barthélémy, Gérard Pirès Stephane Brizé, and Danièle Thompson, who are among the filmmakers scheduled to attend the festival as part of the French delegation.

“In celebrating a decade of the best of French cinema for our Los Angeles audiences, the Franco-American Cultural Fund has established COL•COA as an important industry affair, an increasing public success and a delightful discovery for novice French film-goers,” stated festival director Claudia Durgnat. “With 18 feature films and 18 shorts, COL•COA is now the largest North American event dedicated to French cinema and the second largest in the world,” added festival programmer François Truffart.

City of Lights, City of Angels Film Festival is funded by the Franco-American Cultural Fund, a unique collaboration of the Directors Guild of America (DGA); SACEM, France’s Society of Authors, Composers and Publishers of Music; Writers Guild of America, west (WGA,west); the Motion Picture Association (MPA) and with the vital support of L’ARP, France’s Association of Directors and Producers; The French Embassy in the United States – The Film and Television Office in Los Angeles and Unifrance.

Back by popular demand will be the specially-themed Friday evening showcase (film noir), Sunday’s Audience Choice Award film shown earlier in the festival , as well as “A Short Afternoon,” the compilation screening of all 18 shorts, both free to the public, and served with a COL•COA birthday cake. The featured documentary film will be “My Dad is Into Terrorism” (La Fille du Juge), William Karel’s moving testimony by a judge’s daughter whose life is essentially stolen. The film will be screened in the established Thursday early evening program.

City of Lights, City of Angels Film Festival is sponsored by KTLA, TV5MONDE (Premier Sponsors), Air France, Los Angeles magazine (Official Sponsors), Mumm Cordon Rouge, Warner Bros., Club Culinaire of French Cuisine, AirStar (Major Sponsors) and Variety, indieWIRE, Ricard, Vivendi Universal Games, Volvic and Badoit (Supporting Sponsors).
