Cinémathèque FrançaiseAn exhibition dedicated to the acclaimed French film director Jacques Demy is to be unveiled at a Paris gallery next spring.

The Cinémathèque Française, noted for holding one of the largest archives of films, movie documents and film-related objects in the world, will reveal its display on 10 April and will run until 4 August 2013, leaving plenty of time for culture vultures to plan a trip that coincides with the exhibition to one of the excellent hotels in Paris.

Regarded by many as one of the most approachable filmmakers to appear in the wake of the French New Wave, Demy is perhaps best known for his original 1964 musical film ‘The Umbrellas of Cherbourg’, which became a massive hit in France and went on to receive 5 Academy Award nominations in total.

The exhibition is to explore his talent for film making whilst also revealing his photography and paintings to the public for the first time. Be sure to check his work out whilst enjoying a magical European break next year.
