Beart, the star of over 20 films, will head up an 85-strong French delegation of directors, actors and distributors who will attend the event, seen as "a major gathering for French, Japanese and Asian professionals", the French overseas film promotion body Unifrance said in a statement.

The June 16-20 festival is to showcase 18 French movies for an audience that will count nearly 200 Asian buyers, most of them Japanese, and hundreds of journalists.
