Yokohama: 420 interviews!

115 media representatives (from the press, television, radio and the Internet) took part in the 10th Yokohama French Film Festival.

The largest number of interviews was held by women's magazines (Marie-Claire Japan, Elle Japan, Le Figaro Japan, Josei Joho, Pause and Frau) as well as specialist magazines (Nobody, Bs Fan, Kinema Junpo and Cut). The country's three largest dailies, Yomiuri Shimbun (with a circulation of 14 million copies), Asahi Shimbun (8 million copies) and Manichi Shimbun (3 million copies), interviewed, among others, Constantin Costa-Gavras, Gérard Lanvin, Jérôme Deschamps and Bertrand Tavernier.
The major culture-oriented television channels, NHK, CSN1 and Coming Soon, and the radio station FM Yokohama provided daily coverage of the Festival.
The actors and directors who attracted the most media attention were Jeanne Moreau for "Cet Amour-Là," Costa-Gavras for "Amen," Benoît Jacquot for "Tosca," Bertrand Tavernier and Jacques Gamblin for "Laissez-passer," Julie Lopes-Curval and Bulle Ogier (see photo) for "Bord De Mer" ("Seaside") and Benoît Poelvoorde and Gérard Lanvin for "Le Boulet" ("Ball and Chain").
Each team present at the Festival to accompany their film participated in an average of 15 interviews.
