For the first time, the main venue of Deauville Green Awards will be located in a former Franciscan monastery, which was reconstructed by French architect Alain Moatti into a culture center. Located in the heart of Deauville, the Franciscaines provide a large auditorium and projection rooms, terraces and networking areas, a TV set and an innovative Market Place under the central glass roof. The program of the Deauville Green Awards features green talks, masterclasses and discussions with industry experts, who will also talk about sustainability in film and media production.
Alongside the physical program in Deauville, there will be opportunities for international festival particiants to follow most of the screenings and discussions online which will be streamed live. Furthermore, the exhibitors who are present at the market place will also be available in a virtual space during the Deauville Green Awards. The films can be submitted to the festival online. Independent filmmakers, students as well as NGOs may apply for a discount.
