Netflix Celebrates Great Films, Filmmakers and Emerging Talent at the Lumi re Festival

Entertainment

09 October 2021

France

The Lumi re Festival has become, over the years, a great way for Netflix to engage with all kinds of cinephiles. This is a celebration of all kinds of cinema, from France and around the world, as well as the greatest films and filmmakers of yesterday, today and tomorrow.

A common passion for great films and filmmakers

This year, Netflix, represented by co-CEO Ted Sarandos, will have the honor of presenting four films and supporting filmmakers as varied as they are prestigious. And this year is of special note with three female directors, starting with one of the most celebrated and influential: Jane Campion.

Maggie Gyllenhaal, Thierry Fremaux, Ted Sarandos & Paolo Sorrentino at the opening ceremony of the Lumiere festival in Lyon (Sat Oct 9, 2021)

Twelve years since her last feature, Jane Campion will present her new film, The Power of the Dog, a drama which shows that she remains one of the most inspired artists of our time. She will also receive the festivals supreme distinction, the Prix Lumi re, in addition to being honored with a career retrospective.

The festival will also spotlight the Netflix directorial debuts of two beloved actresses: Maggie Gyllenhaal and Rebecca Hall, who will present The Lost Daughter and Passing, respectively.

Finally, Paolo Sorrentino will be the other guest of honor at the festival. The filmmaker of La Grande Bellezza (the 2013 Academy Award winner for Best Foreign Film) will present some of his greatest films and in particular his latest opus, The Hand of God. In this intimate movie, Sorrentino traces the genesis of his vocation as a filmmaker and celebrates the importance of cinema...

Netflixs participation in the Lumi re Festival follows Alfonso Cuarons presentation of Roma and the restored version of Orson Welles film On the Other Side of the Wind in 2018, as well as the French premiere of Martin Scorseses The Irishman in 2019.

Foster the emergence of a new generation of talent

During his visit to Lyon, Ted Sarandos also went to meet the students of Cin Fabrique, a film school which aims to foster a new generation of talents.

Founded by Claude Mouri ras, La Cin Fabrique identifies and trains promising young talents through a hands-on curriculum based on a close link with the industry. This educational approach resonates with our ambition to help bring out a new generation of talents in front of and behind the camera. This is why we are proud to support school scholarships as part of the "Education l'image" program designed for young people with deep academic challenges. Those selected are given financing to produce their short films, access to Netflix executives and talent, as well as special writing classes covering serialized storytelling, and the chance to receive on-the-job training on Netflix productions like the upcoming season of Lupin.

This collaboration between Netflix and Cin Fabrique is one of several partnerships in France we've established to help foster the next generation of filmmakers, including the F mis, the cole Gobelins, the cole Kourtrajm , 1000 Visages, the CEEA and the Collectif 50/50.
