On February 25, we will know the winners of the César 2022. Chaired by director Danièle Thompson, this 47th ceremony will be broadcast live, unencrypted and exclusively on Canal + from 9 p.m.
To fully experience this great mass of French cinema, organized at L’Olympia, and get in the mood, the Canal group antennas will deploy event coverage, accompanied by dedicated programming and, ahead of the ceremony, programs in tune with the Césars.
New shows and documentaries
Among them, “Cesarissime”, a close-up on the actors and actresses crowned in previous editions, broadcast from Monday February 14 to Thursday February 24 at 8:25 p.m., and followed by the program “En Aparté”, presented by Natalie Levy.
To wait before D-Day, viewers can also count on “Tchi Tcha”, a magazine devoted to cinema presented by Laurie Cholewa (Friday February 18 at 7:40 p.m., Sunday February 20 at 11:55 a.m.).
Another appointment: “The circle of cinema”, on Canal + Cinema, (Friday, February 18, at 10:25 p.m.), a program of critical debates full of enthusiasm over which Alain Kurger and his columnists will present their forecasts.
Before the big night on February 25, several shows and documentaries are also scheduled throughout the day. On the program: “The evening when I received a César”, at 5:50 p.m., followed at 6:55 p.m. by the unpublished documentary “The Caesar years of Antoine De Caunes”, designated as master of ceremonies.
An exercise he knows inside out, since this new edition will be the tenth for him in this host costume for the annual French cinema awards evening. And before the kick-off of the 47th edition, the program “Tchi Tcha César 2022” will be broadcast from 7:55 p.m., live from the red carpet.
