The Deauville American Film Festival (French: Festival du cinéma américain de Deauville) is a yearly film festival devoted to American cinema, taking place since 1975 in Deauville, France.[1][2]

It was established by Lionel Chouchan and André Halimi, thanks to the determination of the then Mayor of Deauville, Michel d'Ornano, and thanks to the support lent by the Lucien Barrière group in providing a luxurious setting for the Festival.[3] Although not competitive at its origin, the festival began to award prizes in 1995, for feature films, and 1998 for short films.


Grand Prix du jury[edit]

This award was named Grand Prix spécial Deauville from 1995 to 2007 and Grand Prix du cinéma indépendant américain in 1998 and 1999.

Prix du jury[edit]

The award was called Prix du jury spécial Deauville (Special Deauville Jury Award) from 1995 through 1997 and Prix spécial du jury du cinéma indépendant américain (Special Jury Award of American Independent Film) in 1998 and 1999.
