Dylan Penn

New Hollywood Award

Initiated in 2011 by the Deauville American Film Festival, the New Hollywood Award recognizes the talent, passion and commitment of actors on the creative path. These emerging performers are the faces of tomorrow's cinema. In past editions, Ryan Gosling (2011), Jessica Chastain (2011), Paul Dano (2012), Robert Pattinson (2015), Elizabeth Olsen (2015), Chloe Grace Moretz (2016), Daniel Radcliffe (2016), Shailene Woodley (2018), Elle Fanning (2018), and Sophie Turner (2019) have been honored with the award.

This year, the New Hollywood award goes to Dylan Penn. Lulled by the cinema since childhood, Dylan Penn grew up not far from the film sets, with the many projects in which her two parents, Oscar-winning actor and director Sean Penn, and actress Robin Wright, were involved. Born in Los Angeles in the early 1990s, she began a modeling career in 2013, then made her film debut two years later in the lead role in the horrific comedy "Condemned," directed by Eli Morgan Gesner.

She also appears in "Rock Roll Ride," a video installation directed by Julia Restoin Roitfeld and presented as part of Paris Fashion Week, as well as in the music video "Chains" by American pop star Nick Jonas. She then starred alongside Michael Shannon and Kevin Spacey in "Elvis & Nixon" by Liza Johnson (2016).

This year, the young actress stars in "Flag Day", where she plays the lead role under the direction of her father, whom she also stars in. Adapted from Jennifer Vogel's novel, "Flim-Flam Man: A True Family History", the film is a portrait of a young woman struggling to heal the wounds of her past, while rebuilding her father-daughter relationship.

Dylan Penn will soon star in "Tramp", Michael Sutherland's first feature film.
