Aimimage & Dinard, The British Film FestivalMarc Ehrenbold
Since 1989 the Dinard British Film Festival has opened its door every year to honour original British productions in the french town of Dinard. It’s the most British of all French seaside resorts and has since become an international place of interest.
The Festival lasts for five days, from the 28th September until 02nd October, and showcases the movies in five different cinemas. It includes 6 competing films, 10 or so premieres, around 20 short films and a jury that consists of Claude Lelouch as the president, James D’Arcy, Victoria Bedos, Julie Ferrier, Eric Lagesse, Jalil Lespert, Sylvie Testud and Phil Davis. All of which are people in the film industry, either actors, producers or screenwriters.
