#AFFFF2019 /Alliance Française French Film Festival 2019
DATES (Melbourne): 6 MAR - 10 APR
VENUES: Palace Cinemas
Message from Philippe Platel who is the Cultural Attaché of the French Embassy, and has been the Artistic Director of the Alliance Française French Film Festival since 2016:
This 30th Anniversary edition is set to be exceptional, with a 54- films 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).
Come and join the joyous celebration of this 30th anniversary with the 54 unique presents it has to offer!
