Entertainment is continuing its comeback in France. After the cinema in Deauville, it is television that is honored with the 23rd edition of the La Rochelle TV Fiction Festival. As usual, the La Rochelle region welcomes a host of stars who come to present their series or TV movie from September 13 to 18, 2022.

This year, the French actress Sandrine Bonnaire succeeds the actor Guillaume de Tonquédec as president of the jury. The director and screenwriter is accompanied by six other members in order to award the prizes among the French-speaking and foreign fictions in competition. At his side, we find David Baïot, Caroline Bottaro, Gaëlle Cholet, Brice Davoli, Arnauld Mercadier and Louise Monot.

To open this new edition of the La Rochelle Festival, the president and the members of the jury walked the red carpet in front of the photographers. Sandrine Bonnaire was lovely in a jumpsuit and her black heeled sandals. While the actress Louise Monot opted for an orange top and pants that sublimated her in front of the photocall.

Other French stars were also there for this 23rd La Rochelle Festival, such as actress Alexandra Lamy who came to present her TV movie Touchées, broadcast on September 29 on TF1. More canon than ever, the director and mother of Chloé Jouannet caused a sensation in front of the photographers. Like her, Blandine Bellavoir and Odile Vuillemin were also present for this first day of the festival.
