Time for the Croisette

48th American Film Festival

The Deauville American Film Festival fosters a silent and secret dialogue between the filmmakers of the Cannes Film Festival and the United States. Passing on and sharing are the values of the festival, which are reflected in this selection. For the third consecutive year, the Festival is partnering with the Cannes Film Festival. The Cannes selection will be entirely devoted to the 2022 Palmarès and will present the Palme d'or as well as the two Grand Prix. Thierry Frémaux, General Delegate of the Cannes Film Festival, will be present in Deauville to present these works.
