Earlier this month the first ever the Champs-Élysées Film Festival took place in cinemas in the heart of Paris, including the legendary Lincoln, Le Balzac  and Gaumont cinemas. For its inaugural outing the festival decided to honour the American film producer and movie studio chairman Harvey Weinstein. He was the co-founder of Miramax Films with his brother Bob and subsequently they founded The Weinstein Company together in 2005. A selection of ten features produced by Weinstein were screened in honour of the big man including  Jackie BrownKill Bill 1 and Kill Bill 2, Pulp Fiction, The English Patient and  The Aviator (pictured). Like the man, they made for a formidable collection and Parisian cinemagoers flocked to see these great films again.
