The 2018 Festival in Normandy:
Famed Actor David McCallum (The Great Escape, Colditz, NCIS, Man From U.N.C.L.E.) Will Be Official Host of the 2018 Normandie-World War II International Film Festival and Band of Brothers Actors Reunion in Normandy, France
In 2017 the World War II Foundation held the first ever Normandie-World War II International Film Festival in Sainte Marie du Mont and Carentan, France. Over 50 films made the cut in the inaugural film fest. A red carpet event featuring actors from the Band of Brothers television series, film directors and producers and 10 D-Day veterans kicked off the four-day festival at the famed Utah Beach Museum.
The Normandie-WWII International Film Festival is the only film festival in the world featuring the latest on WWII content only, from feature films to shorts.

**Because these are actors, we cannot guarantee 100% their attendance as they may be offered an acting job in a movie or television show just prior to our 2018 event.
