John Cameron Mitchell: the Champs-Elysées Film Festival’s guest of honour
As of today, and until June 19th, 2018, the Champs-Elysées Film Festival is returning for its 7th edition. This year’s theme is independence and the guest star is American director John Cameron Mitchell. Let’s take a closer look at cinephiles’ favourite Parisian film festival.
John Cameron Mitchell: celebration of a genius
The festival begins tonight at 7p.m. with a movie by American director and writer John Cameron Mitchell, "How to talk to girls at parties". This opening film will be screened at the Gaumont Marignan cinema. The evening will then continue at the House of Denmark with a showcase and an open bar. "How to talk to girls at parties" is a comedy which was released in 2017 in the United States (in 2018 in France), with actresses Nicole Kidman and Elle Fanning. The story is about three young Englishmen who fall under the spell of stunning creatures in a party and wonder how to talk to them! The filmmaker will also give a masterclass at the Publicis Cinemas on June 13th at 6p.m. Hurry up and get your unlimited pass to watch all the American and French independent feature-length and short films presented at the festival.
Bonus: British actor Tim Roth will give a masterclass on June 15th, 2018, at 7:30p.m., at the Publicis Cinemas.
