Chanel has partnered with the Deauville American Film Festival, which will be held this September.
The event is the biggest celebration of American cinema in Europe and was established in 1975 in the French town of Deauville.
“Cinema — its most talented actresses and boldest directors — is intrinsically linked to the history of Chanel and has been since its founder Gabrielle Chanel,” the brand said in a statement about the news via WWD.
This is not Chanel’s only commitment to the world of film. The fashion house also sponsors the Tribeca Chanel Women’s Filmmaker Programme and also hosts an annual pre-Oscars party. In addition to this, the brand has close relationships with numerous Hollywood actresses, including Kristen Stewart, Margot Robbie and Penelope Cruz, whom they more often than not dress for the red carpet.
The Deauville American Film Festival will be held from the 6th to the 15th September.
