Soirée #42 is our annual celebration of Bastille Day and all things independent, specifically films from around the world. Cinémonde is delighted to screen a program of compelling short films by dynamic filmmakers working in the U.S., Italy, England, France, Spain, Israel and Poland. All of the filmmakers will introduce their work.

This Bastille Day we also celebrate an award for Cinémonde: the French Ambassador to the U.S., François Delattre, will present to Cinémonde the 2014 “Prix Renaissance de Rayonnement Culturel” (Renaissance Prize for Spreading the Light of Culture) on July 8 at the French Embassy in Washington, D.C.

Our pre-screening cocktail party kicks off at 6:30 pm when we will be serving a special summer picnic of delicious hors d'oeuvres, accompanied by a selection of fine wines and spirits. The screening program starts at 8:00 pm. After the screenings and our Q&As with the filmmakers, our post-screening after-party will serve one-for-the-road drinks and desserts.

Cinémonde's founder, Jerome Henry Rudes, is the 2014 winner of the Prix Renaissance de Rayonnement Culturel (Renaissance Prize for Spreading the Light of Culture). For more info, go to: Médaille d'Or 2014

Cinémonde is a smart, private, elegant movie series with sneak previews all year long of thought-provoking films plus cocktail receptions for film lovers and filmmakers. Why? To create a cordial, intimate venue for seeing independent films from around the world, offering participants the opportunity to focus on each soirée's specially-curated program of high-caliber films, interact with the filmmakers and each other while savoring wonderful foods and beverages. The underlying theme is to bring people together with universal stories and warm hospitality.

There is a persistent rumor that there will also be dancing at this soirée, so bring your salsa shoes! We will end the evening at 10:30 pm, but some guests linger until we close out at 11:00 pm. We strongly suggest you reserve early for Soirée #42 on July 14, as we usually sell out of tickets before the event. A Waiting List will be set up in case of last-minute cancellations.

Soirée #42 will be our final Cinémonde event before the summer break, so if you can not make it on Monday, July 14, we'll see you in the fall for Soirée #43, our first event of the autumn, most probably in late September, for another evening of good film, good people, good talk and good food and spirits!

MID-AUGUST LUNCH
Cinémonde's founder, Jerome Henry Rudes, is the 2014 winner of "La Médaille d'Or du Rayonnement Culturel" for the United States, a prize created by La Renaissance Française in Paris in 1916 by Raymond Poincaré, then President of France. The medal distinguishes persons who have rendered distinguished service in French language, literature, arts, science and technology. It is awarded under the patronage of the President of the French Republic and the Ministers of Foreign Affairs, Interior, Defense and National Education.

After a decade with the venerable Fifi Oscard Agency, Mr. Rudes opened his own boutique agency, Mistral Artist Management, in January 2008 in order to represent a select group of talented authors, playwrights, directors, screenwriters and actors in America and Europe.

He is the Founder/President of the 25-year-old Avignon Film Festival (in France) and the 13-year-old Avignon/New York Film Festival (in Manhattan) where he hosted many established filmmakers such as Louis Malle, Agnès Varda, Jerry Schatzberg, Roger Corman, David Brown, Larry Cohen, Curtis Hanson, Mika Kaurismaki, Claude Miller, Paul Schrader and Paul Mazursky, as well as scores of emerging filmmakers like Cedric Klapisch, Steve Buscemi, Richard Linklater, Arnaud Desplechin, Christophe Ruggia, Bruno Dumont, Gaspar Noé and Quentin Tarantino.

Mr. Rudes co-authored Samuel Fuller's "A Third Face, My Tale of Writing, Fighting and Filmmaking," published by Alfred Knopf in 2004. The book was published in France in 2010 by Editions Allia to excellent reviews.

Under the Mistral Artist banner, Mr. Rudes launched Cinémonde in 2008, a year-round series of invitation-only evenings for film lovers and filmmakers with sneak previews of thought-provoking films from around the world. Cinémonde soirées include cocktail receptions, Q&As with the filmmakers and networking opportunities for film, media and entertainment professionals (and those who want to be). Among filmmakers who have presented their work at Cinémonde are Mary Stuart Masterson, Jerry Zaks, John Turturro, Susan Seidelman, Alexander Rockwell, Matthew Broderick, Patrice Leconte, Dayna Goldfine, Dan Geller, Jannicke Systad Jacobsen, Frederic Lilien, Jörgen Bergmark, Gianni Di Gregorio, Laurent Tirard, Andrew Davis, Tammy Simon Hoffs, Jennifer Devoldère, Thierry Binisti, Olivia Silver, Jay Craven, Maryam Keshavarz, Ishai Setton, Andrew Fierberg, Nina Rosenblum, Daniel V. Allentuck, Dan Mirvish, Emanuele Crialese & Drew Denny.

A dual citizen of both the United States and France, Mr. Rudes lives in New York City and Provence.
