Festival International du Film Indépendant de Bordeaux

The 3rd festival, which once again received continued recognition and support from the world of cinema, took place from the 7th to the 12th of November 2014 in Bordeaux. The jury consisted of Peter Suschitzky, director of photography – particularly well-known for his work with David Cronenberg and Tim Burton (President of the Jury) – Guillaume Brac, director and winner of the Grand Prix in 2013, dancer and actress Kate Moran, director Rebecca Zlotowski, and actor Stanislas Mehrar.
The high points of the festival included homage paid to John Cassavetes, a master class with Jacques Doillon, special screenings, etc. The Village Mably was the festival’s nerve centre, and this is where we served wines from the Clarendelle family every evening during “Happy Hours” set aside for festival guests, as well as at the Café Coeur, a temporary restaurant located underneath the archways.
At the end of the festival, Prince Robert de Luxembourg, President of Domaine Clarence Dillon, invited the organizing team, the members of the jury, Mr Alain Juppé (Mayor of Bordeaux), and award winners to lunch at Château Haut Brion. Prizes were awarded on this occasion. These consisted of: a magnum of 2004 red Château Haut-Brion, a magnum of 2004 red Château La Mission Haut-Brion, a magnum of 2011 Château Quintus, and a case of 2009 red Clarendelle, as well as a donation of 5,000 € for the Domaine Clarence Dillon Grand Prix du Jury, won by Thomas Salvador for the film “Vincent n’a
pas d’écailles” (“Vincent has no Scales”).
