Deauville Fest to feature James Cameron’s “Deepsea Challenge 3D”

PanARMENIAN.Net - In a nice get for the Deauville Festival of American Film, James Cameron will be on hand at the Normandy event for the French premiere of his Deepsea Challenge 3D, Deadline said.

The festival, which is celebrating four decades this year, is creating a special 40th anniversary award in his honor.

The Walt Disney Company France is releasing the documentary in French theaters on September 17, a little over a month after DisruptiveLA puts it out Stateside on August 8.

Directed by John Bruno, Andrew Wight and Ray Quint, the film chronicles Cameron’s solo voyage in a submersible to the deepest spot on earth — the bottom of the Pacific Ocean’s Mariana Trench. The Oscar-winning filmmaker obtained the footage for the 3D release while shooting a National Geographic special on the dive. The 40th anniversary award will be presented to Cameron at Deauville’s closing ceremony on September 13.
