Alliance Française French Film Festival
Returning to Palace Cinemas in Brisbane from March 14 to April 14, the 30th annual Alliance Française French Film Festival is poised to seduce audiences with an incendiary selection of features, documentaries and more, all of which showcase the passion, artistry and dazzling diversity of contemporary French cinema.
This 30th Anniversary edition is set to be exceptional, with a 54-film line-up – the biggest yet for the Festival. Showcasing works from prodigies of French cinema (Yann Gonzalez, Mikhaël Hers, Coralie Fargeat, Jeanne Herry…) alongside those who inspired them (Claire Denis, Jean-Luc Godard, Olivier Assayas, Jacques Audiard), indulge in a voyage into the broad spectrum of French cinema. This upbeat and cheery celebration is also a breath of fresh air to French-Australian shared values: openness, diversity, and awareness. Opening to other cultures and international talents, this year’s dynamic selection delivers a broad and diverse vision of contemporary issues, such as social justice, gender equality or ecology. Sometimes with a quirky take (I Feel Good, The Summer House, Dilili in Paris, Revenge), sometimes with an accurate and well documented approach (At War, Wine Calling) and sometimes by crossing the border (Keep Going, The Extraordinary Journey of the Fakir, Girl).
