63rd Berlinale showcases around 30 French productions
Three French majority films will compete for the Golden Bear Award at the 2013 Berlin International Film Festival.
Camille Claudel 1915 by Bruno Dumont, starring Juliette Binoche, On My Way by Emmanuelle Bercot, starring Catherine Deneuve, and The Nun by Guillaume Nicloux, starring Isabelle Huppert, Pauline Etienne, and Louise Bourgoin, will be vying for the jury's vote this year.
The Panorama section will present new films by Nicolas Philibert (La Maison de la radio), Olivier Meyrou (Parade), Jacques Doillon (Mes séances de lutte), and Sébastien Lifshitz (Bambi).
The Generation competition section for young audiences will showcase Marussia by Eva Pervolovici.
This year's festival will also pay tribute to Claude Lanzmann, honoring him with a Golden Bear, which will be presented in the presence of Aurélie Filippetti and his German counterpart Bernd Neumann.
Taking all festival sections into account (the Competition, Panorama, Forum, Berlinale Special, Generation, and so forth), French cinema (including co-productions) will be represented by around thirty feature films and three shorts at this 63rd festival, which will be held February 7 through 17, 2013.
A host of French actors and directors will walk the red carpet at the Berlinale, including Emmanuelle Bercot, Juliette Binoche, Louise Bourgoin, Catherine Deneuve, Jacques Doillon, Bruno Dumont, Pauline Etienne, Sarah Forestier, Isabelle Huppert, Guillaume Nicloux, and James Thierrée.
As is the case each year, uniFrance Films will be responsible for promoting French films and highlighting their exposure at the event, with a cocktail party to be held Friday, February 8, in honor of French cinema.
The uniFrance Films booth at the Film Market, held at the Martin-Gropius-Bau, will represent twelve French sales companies: Alfama Films, Bac Films, Cité Films, Coproduction Office, Doc&Film International, Funny Ballons, Futurikon, Les Films du Losange, Le Pacte, Pyramide International, Urban Distribution International, and Wide/Wide House.
