Bonne Fête Nationale! It is Bastille Day, France’s more-or-less equivalent of our Independence Day. Could there be a better time to announce the upcoming blogathon, Vive la France!, to be hosted by CMBA members Lady Eve’s Reel Life and Silver Screen Modes? We think not.
Sunday, August 25
All day and into the night
- Classic films made in France, classic films made in Hollywood (or elsewhere, if you like) that are set in France (fully or partially).
- Profiles of the stars of French films (like Jean Gabin, Danielle Darrieux, Alain Delon, Catherine Deneuve, Jeanne Moreau, etc.) and profiles of French-born stars who had significant Hollywood careers (like Charles Boyer, Claudette Colbert, Maurice Chevalier, Louis Jourdan, Simone Signoret, etc.).
- Articles and profiles on significant French writers, directors, producers, and the same for French-born Hollywood behind-the-camera folk.
- Basically, the focus is France and French, with broad application. Any questions, contact us as listed below – we are open to suggestion.
1) No duplicate posts on films or on profiles of individuals.
2) It’s OK to post on different films by the same star or profile subject.
3) This is an open blogathon, CMBA membership is not required.
