3 highlights of the Varilux French Film Festival in Brazil
The 2010 Varilux French Film Festival (formerly French Film Panorama) has just closed its doors. We focus on just three of its highlights.
Thursday June 3: The festival opens in Rio de Janeiro with the screening of Coco Chanel & Igor Stravinsky by Jan Kounen, in the presence of the film's artistic delegation led by Anna Mouglais. The Odeon theater sells out, packed with a crowd of 650 people. Imovision, the film's distributor, is delighted by the audience's reaction, which augurs well for the film's theatrical release in August.
Friday June 4: The open-air screening of Little Nicolas, in the presence of its director Laurent Tirard, in Vidigal, one of Rio's favelas. 200 children are entertained by the adventures of Sempé's hero. The film is greeted with applause, cries and laughter, and blasts of motorbike horns!
Sunday June 5: The Fortress of Copacabana hosts the open-air screening of Oceans by Jacques Perrin and Jacques Cluzaud, who is there to present the film. Lulled by the sound of the waves, 300 spectators share this unique and special moment.
