Champs-Élysées Film Festival 2020: online and free of charge
In 2020, the Champs-Élysées Film Festival will be online! Due to the health crisis, the 9th edition had to be cancelled in its usual form. But you will be able to find it online and free of charge from June 9th to 16th. Cinephiles, to your screens!
As its name suggests, the Champs-Élysées Film Festival is a film festival. Its objective? To defend and promote independent American and French cinema.
Usually, festival-goers and film personalities meet on the most beautiful avenue in the world. For a week they attend screenings, ceremonies, previews, festive evenings…
This year things will be a little different. Exit the crowd baths, the red seats in the cinemas, the rhinestones and sequins evenings organized in some exceptional place of the capital… You will have to be satisfied with your sofa and the digital version of the numerous directors, actors and authors participating.
Among them, two guests of honour will sponsor this rather special edition: directors Stephen Frears and Edgar Wright. You will be able to meet them during interactive masterclasses online and live!
As for the programming, it promises some nice surprises. Feature films, shorts, retrospectives, masterclasses, musical showcases and exclusive bonuses: you can enjoy everything in its entirety!
The other good news is that the official competition will continue. The films and shorts that win the favour of the various juries and the public will be awarded a prize. Don’t hesitate to vote!
In June, celebrate the 7th art from the comfort of your own home, thanks to the Champs-Élysées Film Festival.
