The Deauville American Film Festival has become an incredibly popular event since it began in 1975. Although not a competitive festival to begin with, the Festival has been awarding prizes for American independent cinema since 1995, which include the Grand Prix du Jury, the Prix du Jury and a Prix de la Critique Internationale (International Critics Prize).

This is the only Festival in the world to screen films for the general public and cinema enthusiasts 24/7 for a 10-day period, from the first Friday in September to the Sunday of the following week.

Homages

Deauville Festival has also welcomed some of the biggest names in American cinema including Robert de Niro, Clint Eastwood, George Clooney, Sharon Stone and Al Pacino, to name but a few. What's more, its “Hommages” (homages), created in 1977, have enabled it to play host to guests such as Liz Taylor (1985), Bette Davis (1987), Kirk Douglas (1999), Robert Mitchum (1989), Gregory Peck (1977) and Burt Lancaster (1979).

Uncle Sam's Documentaries

Since 2003, the Festival has been “sounding out America” by putting various documentaries under the spotlight.

From the beginning of the 20th century to today

Unique in that it screens films around the clock and above all in its ability to offer such a fantastic programme thanks to the Cinémathèque Française competition, since 2007, the Festival has enabled its guests to look back over the history and heritage of American cinema.

Deauville Season 1

This is THE event for lovers of series. With an opening weekend featuring screenings of cult series (with free access), in 2010 the Festival broadened its scope to include American television series. The Festival's main objective is to attract major scriptwriters.
