The 2nd Deauville American Film Festival took place at Deauville, France from August 31 to September 5, 1976. This year, the festival auctioned film posters of the films screening at the festival, which continued over subsequent years.


The festival was non-competitive in nature and remained so until 1995. The festival introduced Lucien Barrière Prize for Literature, which was awarded every year during the Festival to an American author.
