James Cameron to Present ‘Deepsea Challenge 3D’ in Deauville

PARIS —  James Cameron is set to present “Deepsea Challenge 3D” at the 40th edition of Deauville American Film Festival.

Cameron will also be honored with a Fortieth Anniversary Award created for him and marking the festival’s 40 years of existence.

The “Avatar” helmer will receive the kudo during the awards ceremony on Sept. 13.

The documentary follows James Cameron’s expedition to the deepest part of the ocean.

“‘Deepsea Challenge 3D’ resembles James Cameron in its audacity, its generosity and its commitment to change the spectator’s view of the world. Through his work and the emotion it inspires, he has awoken consciences, while at the same time transforming movie-making, taking it to a previously unknown dimension of pleasure,” said Deauville’s artistic director Bruno Barde.

The 3D docu will be released theatrically Aug. 8 in U.S. and Sept. 17 in France.

Deauville will take place Sept. 5-14.
