Gérard Lanvin, first guest
announced for the 2023 edition

Gérard Lanvin : 48 years of a breathtaking career, 2 Césars, 1 Golden Bull

His face is undoubtedly one of the most powerful, one of the most popular too, of French cinema. Gérard Lanvin played the tough guys (“Le Choix des armes” by Alain Corneau, “Tir groupé” by Jean-Claude Missiaen, “Le Prix du danger” by Yves Boisset, “L’Ennemi public nº 1” by Jean-François Richet, “Les Lyonnais” by Olivier Marchal) since the 1970s. But at FIFCL, it is in comedies that we prefer him, from “Marche à l’ombre” by Michel Blanc to “Boulet” by Alain Berberian and Frédéric Forestier (with Benoît Poelvoorde) through “Le goût des autres” by Agnès Jaoui or “J’adore ce que vous faites” by Philippe Guillard.

We are extremely happy and proud to announce that he will be the first Guest of Honor of the 8th Edition of the Festival! Elegant actor, committed citizen, he will receive a Golden Bull for his entire career and a slab with his name on our Liège Walk of Fame, before offering a moment of meeting to his fans.

And, since happiness never comes alone, it is at the Trocadero in Liege that he will end, on November 3, the tour that took his first album, “Ici-Bas” on the roads of France and Navarre, alongside his son, the talented Manu Lanvin.
