This year it is on the theme of the 7th art that the medieval city of Saint-Emilion and the 130 volunteers of the festival will welcome you!
Dominique Renard, founder and president of the festival is amused by the coincidence: "The first sound film in the history of cinema was The Jazz Singer, the story of Al Jolson, released in 1927.
No wonder the organizers chose this theme to celebrate film music in all its forms!
3 days of concerts where international stars and local artists rub shoulders
On the agenda for the 7th edition, 3 evenings of concerts in the picturesque (even cinematographic!) setting of the Douves du Palais Cardinal.
