A tribute will also be paid to Jean Rochefort, a mythical actor who lived on the island.

The closing ceremony of the festival will take place on Thursday 27th August. A jury made up of personalities from the world of cinema and the environment will award the “Porquerolles Award” for a film on the environment.

A special film-concert session, at the initiative of the Porquerolles Jazz Festival, will also take place in the gardens.
