THE ORIGINS OF DEAUVILLE
The first reference to Deauville was in 1060. At this time the village was called A Enilla and looked more like a fishing hamlet than a village.
But the village was small, but the French middle class and the aristocracy enriched it.
Napoleon III built empires in this village, thus Deauville started to become a reference in France.
THE AMERICAN FILM FESTIVAL
This festival was born from the collaboration of André Halimi and Lionel Chouchan. This festival was a dream between them because they both loved films.
This festival put in competition lots of films, and these films are mostly shown in three places: the CID, the casino and Morny.
