After five successful editions, Champs-Élysées Film Festival, created by the producer, distributor and exhibitor Sophie Dulac, celebrates its sixth anniversary from June 15 to June 22 with the same will to bring the best of French and American cinema to the audience.


Such is the invitation extended to Parisians for its sixth festival in the spirit of celebration, with a commitment to offer festival-goers a real journey in films between France and the United States.

The 2017 jury will consist of experts from all backgrounds, deeply involved in French independent cinema :

This jury’s mission will be responsible for rewarding the best of the six films of the American independent competition as well as the best of the six films of the independent French competition. As every year, the audience will be invited to vote for their favorite film (Audience Prize).

During this week, many guests will meet festival-goers :

Another innovation this year is an exclusive and daring musical program for the most part Parisian. This will enable festival-goers to meet every evening on the Rooftop of the festival, the most beautiful outdoor place in Paris, to listen to Camp Claude, La Féline, Requin Chagrin, Juliette Armanet, Sarah Savoy and Piege à Garçon’s DJ sets.

For the first time, the opening and closing evenings will be open to public. So, the film The Florida Project by Sean Baker will start this week of films at Gaumont Marignan and will be followed by an evening at the Petit Palais with a concert by Zombie Zombie.

The closing evening will also take place at Gaumont Marignan with the screening of My Cousin Rachel by Roger Michell. Then, festival-goers will meet at the Salons France-Amériques to enjoy Cléa Vincent’s and The Pirouettes’ concerts.
