Audrey Tautou and Clotilde Courau to take center stage at the Morelia Film Festival

The 14th edition of the Morelia International Film Festival, which will take place in the capital of the State of Michoacán, in Mexico, from October 21 through 30, is one of the most important film festivals in Latin America. This year, it will celebrate the 15th anniversay of Amelie, with Audrey Tautou.

Following in the footsteps of Juliette Binoche in 2014 and Isabelle Huppert in 2015, Audrey Tautou will be the special guest this year at the prestigious Morelia Film Festival, which will take place in the Mexican city registered as a World Heritage Site by UNESCO, a colonial architectural gem.

The actress will present three films: The Odyssey, Eternity, and Amelie, for the fifteenth anniversary of the film by Jean-Pierre Jeunet. Several generations of Mexicans in love with the young woman from Montmartre will be there to catch a glimpse of the French star.

Cinepolis Klic, the Festival's online partner website, will offer, parallel to the festival, a retrospective of eight films retracing the high points of Audrey Tautou's career (Amelie, A Very Long Engagement, L'Auberge espagnole, L'écume des jours, la délicatesse, Coco Before Chanel, The Da Vinci Code, Casse-tête chinois).

Meanwhile, Clotilde Courau will also be present in Morelia as a member of the official jury, as well as to accompany Heaven Will Wait by Marie-Castille Mention-Schaar.

In terms of the artistic delegation, last but not least, Jacques Toulemonde Vidal will come to present his film Anna, a Franco-Colombian coproduction.

Morelia 2016's lineup includes more than twenty French films (or coproductions) spread across the selections, as well as the presence of French film critics Michel Ciment and Edouard Waintrop (artistic director of the Directors' Fortnight) in the juries, along with Charles Tesson, who will attend to present the rerun of a selection of the films from Critics' Week.
