2013 • 39th edition

From 30th August to 8th Sep­tem­ber 2013.
This year the Fes­ti­val was ded­i­cat­ed to the recent­ly deceased pro­duc­er and dis­trib­u­tor Fabi­enne Vonier. The Fes­ti­val paid trib­ute to Dan­ny Kaye (“Deauville Leg­end”), Cate Blanchett, Nico­las Cage, Lar­ry Clark, and John Tra­vol­ta, gave Carte Blanche to the French musi­cal duo JUSTICE, offered one Mas­ter­class around the film analy­sis of the 2012 Grand Prix win­ning film Beasts of the South­ern Wild direct­ed by Ben Zeitlin, and a sec­ond with Vince Gilli­gan, with­in the con­text of Deauville Sea­son 4. The Fran­co-Amer­i­can round table this year was ded­i­cat­ed to “Inno­va­tion v. Cre­ativ­i­ty”, in the pres­ence of pro­duc­er Gale Ann Hurd, to whom the Fes­ti­val was also pay­ing trib­ute. The Festival’s recent revival of the Board­walk beach cab­in tra­di­tion gen­er­at­ed a bustling prom­e­nade-jam of fans deter­mined to see the stars grac­ing this very fine 2013 vin­tage: Cate Blanchett, For­est Whitak­er, and John Tra­vol­ta!
