UniFrance will give a French Cinema Award to Juliette Binoche
On January 19, 2018, during the 20th edition of the Unifrance Rendez-Vous in Paris, UniFrance will report on French film figures at the international box office during 2017 and will honor Juliette Binoche with the French Cinema Award.
Highly present on the world cinema scene in 2017 with Bright Sunshine In by Claire Denis (sold to 42 countries), Juliette Binoche will soon be in the spotlight in France at the initiative of UniFrance, with a French Cinema Award. The ceremony will take place at France's Culture Ministry on January 19, 2018 in the presence of Françoise Nyssen, the minister of culture, Serge Toubiana, president of UniFrance, and Isabelle Giordano, general director of UniFrance.
The actress, who has enjoyed intense international renown for more than twenty years (and her Oscar for Best Actress in a Supporting Role for The English Patient in 1997), recently finished Claire Denis's latest film, and is currently shooting with Olivier Assayas, and will star in Naomi Kawase's upcoming feature.
Created in 2016 by UniFrance, the French Cinema Award, redesigned in 2018 by Daum, celebrates a personality from the international film industry who has strived to turn the spotlight on French films throughout the world. In 2016, the French Cinema Award was given to the producers of The Little Prince, Aton Soumache and Dimitri Rassam (On Entertainment), and to the Italian distributor Andrea Occhipinti (Lucky Red), and in 2017 to the Chinese distributor La Pekang and the actress Isabelle Huppert.
