The 2018 Alliance Française French Film Festival was an exceptional event, filling more and more seats across Australia. With the French film industry having produced some amazing films last year, the 29th Alliance Française French Film Festival is not to be missed. Iconic stars such as Juliette Binoche, Vincent Cassel, Vanessa Paradis, Isabelle Huppert and Gérard Depardieu will be showcased on Australian screens in 50 films over one month in each participating city, starting in Sydney on 27th February.
Comedies and dramas, romances and biopics, period films and animated features…there is something for everyone at this year’s Festival, with a selection of films to make you feel, dream, reflect, laugh or even shed a few tears. France comes to Australia for a few weeks with the Festival epitomizing the ever-strong bond between both nations and cultures.
It is remarkable and very touching for a Frenchman to witness the enthusiasm generated by this Festival across Australia. I was actually living in Australia when the Festival was initiated by the Alliance Française de Sydney in 1989. It gives me great joy that 29 years later, the Festival is still so popular with both our faithful long-term supporters and more and more new spectators every year.
