Digital and drive-in, film festivals try to salvage a season

  Digital and drive-in, film festivals try to salvage a season NEW YORK (AP) — This is normally the time of year when flashy premieres march down red carpets and proclamations of Oscar buzz circle the globe. An avalanche of new films topples onto screens. The movie houses of Venice, Telluride, Toronto and New York shake with applause. The movies, more than ever, feel alive. This year, three of the four major fall film festivals – all but Telluride, which had to cancel – are going forward despite the pandemic. Those in Venice acknowledge it hasn’t been anywhere near the same. Masked moviegoers in set-apart seats. A barrier walls off the red carpet to discourage crowds of onlookers. Greetings are kiss-less.

It also gives pride of place to military heritage with the citadel and the Lion of Belfort (Burgundy - Franche-Comté), Fort La Latte (Brittany) or the arsenal of Rochefort (New Aquitaine).

"We are seeing an increasingly strong sensitivity for all forms of heritage, especially workers or the twentieth century" , specifies Stéphane Bern, who presents the Haut-Fourneau park, in Uckange (Grand Est), and the villa Cavrois (Hauts-de-France). The originality goes to the ideal palace of Facteur Cheval (Auvergne Rhône-Alpes) and to the landscape heritage of the Canal du Midi (Occitanie).

Summer in France has served the rural heritage

Summer activist in France, Stéphane Bern notes: “In the Perche (region of his royal and military college of Thiron-Gardais) , we had 20% more visitors. The summer in France has benefited rural communities and the outskirts of France, but cities have suffered from the absence of foreign tourists ".

M. Patrimoine will soon present two new shows in the regions, "Le Grand Concours de la cuisine des regions" in October and "The favorite farm of the French" at the Salon de l'Agriculture .
