Champs-Elysées Film Festival U.S. Tour 2019

Champs-Elysées Film Festival U.S. Tour 2019

After its 8th edition (June 18 – June 25), Champs-Elysées Film Festival, an essential event to discover the best of French and American independent cinema, now presents the program of its retrospective in North America: the US Tour. Since its inception in 2017, the US Tour of Champs-Elysées Film Festival offers the American public a retrospective of its French film selection with advanced screenings of the «New French Generation» in America.

As a result of the success of this project and the enthusiasm of audience members, the third edition of the US Tour will be held over one month, from October 10 to November 10, 2019, in five American cities: Chicago, Austin, Los Angeles, Vancouver and Portland, where shorts and features from the French selection will be screened. These films were part of the main competition last June during the 8th edition of the festival in Paris. The US Tour will continue in January 2020 in Minneapolis.
