The Atlantique Stade Rochelais (ASR) is one of the oldest rugby clubs, an Atlantic sport par excellence: its creation dates back to 1898! On the 25th of May, the 'black and yellow' team won against Agen and assured its accession to the Top 14 next season, thus giving the Atlantic an important place in the competition.
In June and July, festivals are the evidence of the opening of La Rochelle on the world. Every year during the last week of June, Sunny Side of the Doc brings together more than 2,000 producers and investors from all over the world who came to negotiate and debate around documentary films. In 2014, the 25th edition hosted 58 countries represented by 468 exhibiting companies.
After that, in early July, the International Film Festival of La Rochelle settles in for 10 days. Founded in 1973, this film festival is characterized by the absence of competition and the screenings of major retrospectives devoted to filmmakers or actors. In 2014, the 42nd edition honoured Howard Hawks and the golden age of Soviet silent cinema. Every year, the festival attracts more than 80,000 film lovers.
The last major summer festival in La Rochelle is Francofolies which honours French speaking artists to a large audience. From the 10th to the 14th of July, more than 120,000 festival-goers were expected in La Rochelle for the 30th edition.
