This new bi-monthly article will keep you up-to-date on international travel by actors and directors as they accompany their films around the world (commercial releases, retrospectives, master classes, festivals, preview screenings, and so forth).

On the festival front, Gaspar Noé, Yann Arthus-Bertrand, Yves Montmayeur, and Roxane Mesquida traveled to South Korea to present their films at the Jeonju International Film Festival, while Philippe Grandrieux, was also in attendance to accompany a retrospective of his work and lead a master class. Mikhaël Hers went to New York for the presentation of his film This Summer Feeling, which was included in the Young French Cinema program, an initiative that was launched in 2015 by UniFrance in partnership with the FIAF.

In early June, Thomas Bidegain was in the USA to support the release of Cowboys, while Bruno Dumont accompanied the release of Slack Bay in Belgium, and Benoit Jacquot and Léa Seydoux traveled to New York for the release of Diary of a Chambermaid.
