Alliance Française French Film Festival

Did you ever wonder why France’s film culture is so rich and varied and full of big-name stars? Simple: for every cinema ticket sold in France, whether for a local film or a Hollywood blockbuster, the state gets money to invest into French films.  The latest fruits of this vibrant industry screen in March, spanning comedy, biopic, drama, war stories, animation and romance. They include new movies from the Dardenne Brothers, Anne Fontaine and Bertrand Tavernier, featuring stars such as Isabelle Huppert, Daniel Auteuil, Omar Sy, Audrey Tautou and many, many more. Gender equality is especially strong in the French movie world, with 17 new movies from women directors. And here’s another drawcard: the festival is running a competition this year with prizes for attendees of a trip for two to France and a trip for two to New Caledonia. Here are Time Out’s 12 picks of highlights to look out for. The Alliance Française French Film Festival is set to take place across Palace Cinemas throughout Melbourne including: the Kino Cinemas, the Astor Theatre, Palace Balwyn, palace Brighton Bay, Palace Westgarth and Palace Cinema Como.
