Jane Fonda: Lumière Award 2018


An icon for decades of moviegoers, crowned by two Oscar awards, Jane Fonda has shone brightly in the Hollywood galaxy, without ever giving up her convictions. Through a selection of films, a master class and the Lumière Award presentation ceremony, the festival will honor this artist and her extraordinary filmography (works by Sydney Pollack, Arthur Penn, or René Clément…) and salute a committed activist who fights for the environment and peace.

Jane Fonda will also pay tribute to her late father, Henry Fonda.
