When? June 7-14 2016
What? Features and shorts from French and American directors.
Where? Cinemas and venues along the Champs-Elysées.

This is the perfect festival for anyone who’s yearned to get a slice of Cannes action but doesn’t happen to have a press pass. The Champs-Elysées Film Festival screens Cannes-worthy films by French and American directors every summer, with a decent helping of glamour and media buzz, in venues along the swanky Champs-Elysées. Single tickets and day passes (around €40) are available, and you’ll feel close to the action with directors, celebrities and film industry types generally milling about (guests of honour this year include directors Mia Hansen-Løve, Abel Ferrara and Andrew Davis).

The packed 2016 programme, meanwhile, runs the gamut from French premieres of Robert Eggers’ supernatural period piece ‘The Witch’ and White Stillman’s Jane Austen adaptation/romcom ‘Love & Friendship’ to a special series of screenings themed around the city of Chicago.
