The inaugural film festival of Paris is taking place between the 6th - 12th June 2012... and handily for the luxury Hotel Balzac, is taking place right on the Champs Elysées, just a few hundred yards away from the hotel.
The Publicis building, 133, Ave des Champs-Élysées will be provide the unique setting for a brand new breed of film festival. By all accounts the Paris Film Festival looks to owe more to Sundance than to Cannes... and the event is intended to be a celebration for the public, along with being a prestigious industry event.
It is being hailed as an "Annual fete of French and American film making along the most beautiful avenue in the world."
The festival intends to show around 50 films, featuring 15 French and American films... and along with all 15 of the films that were put forward for Academy Award consideration in the Foreign Language category at this year's Oscars in Los Angeles.
It is also expected that veteran film producer and mogul Harvey Weinstein will be presented with a special tribute... before he is apparently set to take part in a much coveted "Master Class" during the event.
If you're looking for the perfect luxury accommodation during the Paris Film Festival, then may we present Hotel Balzac for your consideration. The hotel is as grand as a star-studded premier at Cannes, as elegant as Jeanne Moreau in her prime... and the building itself has a rich history that goes back further than the entire film industry of the world.
