Chantal de Beauregard created the Georges de Beauregard award as a tribute to her father, film producer Georges de Beauregard. In order to create a more relevant and lasting legacy, she chose to integrate the award to FID, as George de Beauregard was born in Marseille and his mother’s family was from this city. In 2001, FID launched the national and international Georges de Beauregard awards. Born in the Saint-Jérôme neighbourhood in Marseille, George de Beauregard produced short, medium-length and feature films, some of which are celebrated as documents that captured both history and their time:
La passe du diable after Jean-Pierre Kessel’s novel (1957), Jean-Luc Godard’s “Le petit soldat” (1960) on the algerian war, or classics such as “Breathless” (A bout de souffle) , “Cleo from 5 to 7” and “Pierrot le fou”.
