LIne up sneak peek

We are incredibly excited to share with you 5 of the 37 utterly captivating films that
will be showing at the 32nd Alliance Française French Film Festival. Scroll down to see some of the fabulous French films that will be gracing cinemas soon, including 
The Godmother,  Antoinette in the Cévennes,  Perfumes, Miss and Night Shift.

The godmother


The effervescent Isabelle Huppert returns to the Festival in The Godmother, where the gritty realism of Breaking Bad meets the stoner comedy of a Cheech & Chong movie. Based on the award-winning novel by Hannelore Cayre – who also co-wrote the script – The Godmother is a beautifully crafted blend of French noir, drama and comedy with a triumphant performance by Huppert as a defiantly independent woman making her mark on the world with a blunt rather than a whimper.

antoinette in the cevennes


An Official Cannes 2020 Selection, this hilarious and life-affirming romantic comedy stars the wonderful Laure Calamy (Call My Agent!; Sibyl, AF FFF20) as a woman who finds herself on a journey of self-discovery in somewhat unexpected circumstances. Carried by the remarkable Calamy and her scene-stealing co-star, Patrick the donkey, Vignal’s wonderfully mischievous film offers both its lead character and audiences an uproarious and poignant reminder of the virtues of independence, and that the journey, not the destination, is often the reward.

Ruben Alves' inspiring new film Miss is a joyful yet thought-provoking film about a boy who dreamed of conquering the Miss France beauty pageant. This feel-good story about overcoming hardship and prejudice has the perfect lead in androgynous actor and model Alexandre Wetter. With stunning cinematography and a stellar supporting cast, Miss tears apart our preconceptions of gender and inspires us to rethink the status quo.

Call My Agent's Gregory Montel and the delightful Emmanuelle Devos star in this classic odd-couple story about two people whose temperaments are poles apart; and yet, opposites attract. Perfumes is a personality clash comedy that delivers a winning formula of social observation, character drama and empathy. It is exquisitely French and emerges as a breath of fresh – albeit scented – air.

The irresistible Omar Sy joins forces with Belgian darling Virginie Efira for this searing and utterly engrossing film. Set over 24-hours, Night Shift follows three world-weary cops whose obedience to the force is put to the test when they are ordered to escort a man to a plane for deportation to a country that will kill him. A tense and gritty drama, this is guaranteed to be one of the Festival's most talked about events.
