Deauville lineup 2000

COMPETITION

Launched in 1995 as part of a 20th anniversary overhaul, the 10-pic Competition runs Monday through Friday. Past winners — some of which had no firm Gallic distrib until their Deauville showing — have almost all met with increased visibility and decent scores at the domestic box office.

PRERELEASE SCREENINGS

Despite initiatives implemented this year to get distribs and the moviegoing public to take the summer’s releases seriously, autumn in France remains the Gallic answer to America’s popcorn-munching vacation season. Deauville primes that pump each September with a lineup of high-profile studio fare set to roll out locally in coming months:

WHAT LIES BENEATH, Robert Zemeckis

WOMAN ON TOP, Fina Torres

PANORAMA

The Panorama section is a grab bag of recent Yank productions with an indie flavor. One pic in this year’s lineup will get fancier treatment than it did in the U.S. and another may find itself unjustly orphaned by circumstances. HBO cable pic “RKO 281” will get a theatrical release in Gaul but Mike Figgis’ “Timecode” may only be shown at Deauville then abandoned since Columbia is reluctant to opt for tiny subtitles (or costly dubbing) of the groundbreaking tour de force that’s really four complete films unspooling simultaneously in continuous takes on a quartered screen.
