Serving up a packed programme of contemporary French cinema, from box-office hits to more obscure art fare, the semi-governmental UniFrance organisation's mini-festival can feel a little disjointed at times but is still well worth attending for film buffs. A dozen movies will be screened over a long weekend at Yurakucho's Asahi Hall and Toho Cinemas Nichigeki, with Martin Provost's new drama The Midwife, featuring Catherine Deneuve and Catherine Frot, confirmed as the opening film. The lineup also includes Cézanne and I (2016), a biopic of Paul Cézanne and Emile Zola, and Paul Verhoeven's psychological thriller Elle (2016), for which Isabelle Huppert earned an Oscar nomination – see the full list here.

Note that all films will be shown with Japanese subtitles only.
