The Jules Verne Film Festival, with ceremonies held in Los Angeles and Paris, entertains and enlightens audiences of some 60,000 at the sister cities’ most historically significant theaters, and hundreds of thousands more via the internet.  A glittering international occasion in each of its venues, the Festival is where Science meets Fiction: where film aficionados have the opportunity to interact with explorers and filmmakers, artists and scientists, movie stars and environmental heroes.

The Festival’s signature events include movie premieres, documentary competitions, the prestigious Jules Verne Awards gala, and tributes to timeless films and filmmakers representing the Jules Verne traditions of adventure, exploration, and imaginative flights of fancy.
