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. 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. This year the famed Actor David McCallum (The Great Escape, Colditz, NCIS, Man From U.N.C.L.E.) will be Official Host of the 2018 Festival and Band of Brothers Actors Reunion.
