James Cameron will be at the Deauville American Film Festival in September to present his latest film Deepsea Challenge 3D (which also opens in French cinemas on Sept 17).

“Deepsea Challenge 3D resembles James Cameron in its audacity, its generosity and its commitment to change the spectator’s view of the world. Through his work and the emotion it inspires, he has awoken consciences, while at the same time transforming movie-making, taking it to a previously unknown dimension of pleasure,” said Deauville festival director Bruno Barde.

“It is fitting that for its 40 years of existence, the Deauville American Film Festival is honoring this outstanding filmmaker, creating the Fortieth Anniversary Award specially for him. This award will be presented to him at the awards ceremony on September 13.”
