PARIS — The 36th annual Deauville American Film Festival will kick off on Friday with a smaller screen, but bigger stars than recent years with Annette Bening, Terry Gilliam and Zac Efron among the talent expected on the Normandy shores.
The fest will host its first “Deauville: Season 1″ sidebar, a screenwriting and creativity platform for professionals in the TV biz.
The TV sidebar will run from Sept 4th – 5th during Deauville’s opening weekend and will feature Master Classes, an “All About Screenwriting” professional discussion among French and TV writers and screenings of the latest hit U.S. shows including recent Emmy-winners “Modern Family” and “The Good Wife” plus “Sons of Anarchy,” “House,” “Treme,” “How to Make it in America,” “True Blood” and “The Sopranos.”
Efron will be in town to present his latest starring role in “Charlie St Cloud,” also screening out of competition. The Deauville American Film Festival runs Sept 3rd – 12th in Normandy, France.
