Deauville impanels Annaud

French helmer one of Gaul's most exportable filmmakers

PARIS — French helmer Jean-Jacques Annaud will preside over the jury of this year’s Deauville Festival of American Film, organizers said Tuesday.

France’s biggest celebration of American movies will take place Aug. 31-Sept. 9 in the seaside town of Deauville in Normandy.

Annaud (“Enemy at the Gates”) is a fitting choice to succeed last year’s prexy, Neil Jordan. Annaud, one of France’s most exportable filmmakers, has a string of international successes under his belt from “Black and White in Color,” 1977 winner of the foreign-language film Oscar, to “The Bear” (1988), and English-language pics including “The Name of the Rose” (1986) and “Seven Years in Tibet” (1997), starring Brad Pitt.

Organizers are keeping further details of the Deauville fest under wraps until next month.
