New Hollywood Award

Initiated in 2011 by the Deauville American Film Festival, the New Hollywood is an award that recognizes the talent, passion and commitment of actors on the path to creation. These emerging performers are the faces of tomorrow's cinema. In our past editions, Ryan Gosling (2011), Jessica Chastain (2011), Paul Dano (2012), Robert Pattinson (2015), Elizabeth Olsen (2015), Chloé Grace Moretz (2016), Daniel Radcliffe (2016), Shailene Woodley (2018), Elle Fanning (2018) and Sophie Turner (2019) received this award.

This year, the New Hollywood is awarded to Dylan Penn. Cradled by cinema since childhood, Dylan Penn grew up not far from film sets, following the many projects in which his 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 horror 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 Liza Johnson's "Elvis & Nixon" (2016).

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

Dylan Penn will soon be playing "Tramp", Michael Sutherland's feature debut.
