François Ozon's latest film will open the 25th Unifrance Rendez-Vous in Paris

Unifrance is thrilled to announce the world premiere screening of The Crime Is Mine, the new feature by François Ozon, which will open the 25th Unifrance Rendez-Vous in Paris running from January 10 through 17, 2023. 

The 25th Unifrance Rendez-Vous in Paris, the world's largest markets and press junket dedicated to French cinema and audiovisual works, will take place in the capital from January 10 through 17, 2023. This edition is dedicated to Daniel Toscan du Plantier, the charismatic Unifrance president for many years and the initiator of these Rendez-Vous, who passed away almost 20 years ago.

Unifrance is honored to present the world premiere of The Crime Is Mine, François Ozon's latest film, to international distributors and buyers accredited to the Rendez-Vous, on the event's opening night, January 11 at the Le Balzac cinema in Paris. Ozon and his main cast will be present at the screening.

A prolific writer-director, a key figure in contemporary French cinema in France and abroad, and a director capable of tackling all styles and genres with a unique mastery, over the past 20 years, François Ozon has achieved numerous successes outside France, such as 8 Women (4.7 million admissions abroad), Swimming pool (3.45 million admissions), Potiche (2.2 million admissions), In the House (1.3 admissions), and more recently Frantz (1.07 million admissions).

The Crime Is Mine sees him return, in the spirit of 8 Women and Potiche, to the period film, for a story set in the 1930s, around a young actress accused of the murder of a producer. This is the first collaboration between François Ozon and the actresses Nadia Tereszkiewicz and Rebecca Marder, who play the main roles, as well as with Dany Boon, but the director works again with Isabelle Huppert for this film twenty years after 8 Women, and reunites for the third time with Fabrice Luchini, after Potiche and In the House.

The 25th Unifrance Rendez-Vous in Paris program

The Unifrance Rendez-Vous in Paris will be officially launched on January 10 with the 3rd Export Day, which will bring together, at Publicis Cinémas, distributors, broadcasters, producers, exporters, artists, and institutions from France, Europe, and the United States. These personalities will come together to analyze and compare their points of view on the challenges facing the export of French cinema and audiovisual content in the years to come.

The markets (cinema and audiovisual) will take place January 11 through 13 at the Hôtel du Collectionneur.

The cinema market screenings will be held January 11 through 14 in the following theaters, located in within the vicinity Champs-Elysées: Club de l’Étoile, Le Balzac, Le Lincoln, and Publicis Cinémas.

New for this 25th edition, the French TV Screenings, exclusive presentations to audiovisual buyers of new French programs, will take place on January 10 and 11 at the Club de l'Étoile.

Last but not least, the press junket, dedicated to French films and audiovisual programs to be released or broadcast abroad in 2023, will take place from January 14 through 17 at the Hôtel du Collectionneur, in the presence of many French artists who will meet with international journalists.
