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.
