Alliance Francaise French Film Festival
7 March 2017 - 23 April 2017
Celebrating its 28th year in 2017, the Alliance Française French Film Festival is a highly anticipated and extremely popular event on the Australian cultural calendar.
It is not only the biggest film festival in Australia; it is also the biggest festival of French films outside of France.
Each year the festival curates a selection of the best contemporary French films, including comedies, dramas, documentaries and much more. Blockbusters and independent films alike screen over eight weeks in Sydney, Melbourne, Adelaide, Canberra, Brisbane, Byron Bay, Perth, Hobart, Casula and Parramatta. The festival also includes glamorous opening nights, Q&As and special events with renowned figures of French film.
French culture, and in particular French cinema, has never been more popular in Australia than it is right now. The Alliance Française French Film Festival audience includes Australians, French, Francophiles and movie buffs – all keen to experience the latest sophisticated, vibrant and daring films from France.
The annual festival is a collaboration between the Embassy of France in Australia and six Alliances Françaises around the country. The Alliance Française is an independent, not-for-profit language and cultural organisation that has been actively promoting a Franco-Australian exchange for over 130 years.
Having entered its second quarter century, the Alliance Française French Film Festival proudly continues its international celebration of the best new cinema from France.
