The La Baule Festival unveils its prize list

At the La Baule Film and Film Music Festival, the jury chaired by director Radu Mihaileanu delivered its verdict.

To see a film is also and above all to listen to it: this is precisely the conviction of the La Baule Cinema and Film Music Festival. An unmissable event for film music lovers, its 9th edition ended yesterday on the main stage of Atlanta at the Palais des Congrès. As a bonus, spectators were able to attend the concert of the highly anticipated Kyle Eastwood, guest of honor. Ten years after The choriststhe director and founder of the Festival Christophe Barratier pays tribute to the musician and the cinema of his father:

“Eastwood’s entire career, now perpetrated by Kyle, proves that a film can be seen as well as heard.”

At the La Baule Festival, it is indeed music that is at the heart of cinematographic creation. That of Pascal Bideau was rewarded with the Prize for Best Film Music for Marguerite’s theorem (Anna Novion). The jury also highlighted the talents of tomorrow by revealing a young composer, Thibault Duclos Malidor.

It is a delirious and insolent comedy which won the Best Film Award. In The syndrome of past lovesAnn Sirot and Raphaël Balboni mischievously play with romantic codes and recount the astonishing method of a couple in love to have a child: go back to bed with all their exes.

As for the Prize for the best interpretation, it was Karine Viard and Alez Lutz who shared one of the golden trophies in the colors of the La Baule sun. A love story again, but this time in a drama (A night by Alex Lutz), praised by the Cannes selection Un Certain Regard. The crowded metro train in which it opens, the scene of a passionate dispute between these two strangers, will give rise to a burning desire.

Here are the other prizes of the La Baule Film and Film Music Festival:
