LIGHTS, CAMERA, ACTION: Chanel continues to deepen its links with the world of cinema: The French luxury house has become a partner of the 45th edition of the Deauville American Film Festival, to be held from Sept. 6 to 15.
The event, established in 1975, is the biggest European festival devoted to American cinema. The jury for the Prix de la Révélation, awarded to up-and-coming talents, will be headed this year by French actress Anna Mouglalis, a Chanel brand ambassador, the festival’s organizers revealed last month.
Meanwhile, Catherine Deneuve — a former face of Chanel No.5 perfume — will head the festival’s main jury. Chanel has longstanding ties to a number of high-profile film events worldwide, in addition to dressing celebrities such as Keira Knightley, Kristen Stewart, Penélope Cruz and Margot Robbie on the red carpet.
