Celebrate indie cinema on the most beautiful avenue in the world
Category : Culture
A few steps from the O.lysée Hotel, the Champs-Élysées reveals its magnificent perspective. From the Place de l'Etoile dominated by the Arc de Triomphe to the Luxor Obelisk of the Place de la Concorde, the world’s most beautiful avenue is lined with trees and the windows of prestigious shops. It is in this setting, admired around the world, that the Champs-Élysées Film Festival is being held for its twelfth year.
Independent cinema and music in the spotlight
Since its creation, the Champs-Élysées Film Festival has aimed to promote independent French and American film production. A carefully curated selection, a hand-picked jury, screenings open to the general public, and the commitment of all the movie theatres of the Champs-Élysées combine to make this festival so original. Short, medium and feature length films are represented in the same way in order to promote the diversity of this art form. Passion is undoubtedly the driving force, and everyone is encouraged to discuss the films presented.
Music is a feature of the festival
For seven years, independent music has been widely associated with the festival. Through concerts, partnerships and musical entertainment, the Champs-Élysées Film Festival combines the two artforms to create a truly exciting showcase. Take advantage of the incredibly rich programme of the Roof-Top, where concerts and DJ sets are held throughout the duration of the festival. You can find the schedule of concerts online on the festival website. This association between music and cinema gives the Champs-Élysées Film Festival a unique, friendly and festive atmosphere.
From June 20th to 27th, all the cinemas on the most beautiful avenue in the world will host the screenings of the Champs-Élysées Film Festival. Take advantage of your break at the O.lysée Hotel to discover independent creations and enjoy the festive ambiance of the occasion.
