Antipodes Festival

From 9 to 13 october 2019

Australia and New-Zealand, lands of adventure and cinema!

The 21rst edition of the Rencontres Internationales du Cinéma des Antipodes, from the 9th to 13th of October 2019, will take place at the Renaissance cinema. Again this year, Saint-Tropez invites you to immerse yourself in the best of cinema from the end of the world, without moving from the heart of the village of Saint-Tropez and its mythical Les Lices square!
With an well established reputation, the Australian cinema makes the greatest happiness of the spectators. The Festival of the Antipodes or the Cinema of the Antipodes, created by its CEO Bernard Bories in 1995, aims to present films, from the New-Zealand and Australia (and more widely the culture of the Antipodes) in France.

During one week, films in avant-premiere (among which 6 of them are in official competition), short films and documentaries will be screened.

The films presented at this festival are representative of the eclecticism and excellence of this cinema, capable of tackling both the genre film and being attentive to the drifts and ailments of our society, but always with fierce acuity, tenderness and sometimes a touch of irony, humour or self-derision.” says Bernard Bories, CEO of the Festival of the Antipodes.


Since 1999, Saint-Tropez had the chance to welcome numerous actors, actresses and jury members such as David Wenham et Miranda Otto (The Lord of the Ring), Nadia Tass (Amy, Malcolm), Sam Worthington (Avatar), Fred Schepisi (Six degrees of separation), Ben Mendelsohn, Anthony LaPaglia (FBI), the beautiful Radha Mitchell, Rachel Ward
The Festival des antipodes is also great premieres such as American Gangster with Russell Crowe or Le Chemin de la Liberté by Phillip Noyce, heart-wrenching films such as L'Ame des Guerriers, directed by Lee Tamahori, or those of the new wave of Aboriginal filmmakers such as Ivan Sen with the film Sous les nuages…

This is a festival for meetings also, so let’s talk about some famous French names such as: Sagamore Stévenin, Jean-Loup Dabadie, Mareva Galanter, Philippe Caroit, Stéphane Audran, Hervé Claude, David Ginola, Natacha Régnier…

Again this year, the movie grid promises to be rich, then do not hesitate to book your special “cinema week” in Saint-Tropez… Discover the 2019 Program

Entrance is free and open to all (an invitation is required opening and closing films). A beautiful free exhibition in connection with Australian and New-Zealander art is also held in the Jean Despas Hall throughout the festival.
