The Champs-Elysées Film Festival (founded and presided by the very dynamic Sophie Dulac) returns to its favourite slot on the calendar for its 11th edition, which will open tonight with After Yang by Kogonada. Until 28 June, when it will close with a screening of Everything Everywhere All At Once by Daniel Kwan and Daniel Scheinert, more than 60 US and French independent films will be screened in the venues (the Balzac, the Lincoln, Publicis Cinémas, the Gaumont Pathé Champs-Élysées Marignan and the UGC Normandie) of the famous Parisian avenue, where will also be present as guests of honour director Ari Aster and film composer Dan Deacon.
Headed by French director and actress Emmanuelle Bercot (who is joined by Maïmouna Doucouré, Rebecca Marder, Diego Ongaro and Albin de la Simone), the feature film jury will judge two competitions dedicated to independent cinema, one bringing together six US films, and the other, six French films. The latter will include the striking film Rodeo [+leggi anche:
