BIENVENUE and welcome to the 26th edition of the French Film Festival UK which celebrates the crême de la crême of Francophone cinema.
The Festival, curated by Richard Mowe and Ilona Morison in collaboration with founding partner venue Filmhouse, presents a tantalising array of latest features by such famed directors as Jean-Luc Godard, Jean Becker, and Robert Guédiguian as well as newer talents Albert Dupontel, Pierre Schoeller, Cédric Kahn, Philippe Le Guay, Gilles Lellouche and Thomas Lilti among them. First or second time directors include Guillaume Senez, Marie Monge, Hubert Charuel and actor François Damiens on his directorial debut.
Supported by Screen Scotland, Creative Scotland, BFI, Total, TV5, Air France, Eclair, Wallonie Bruxelles and Institut français.
Vive le cinéma!
French Film Festival UK has teamed up with the Paris-based Mobile Film Festival to present a selection of French-language contenders from this year’s crop. They all last one-minute, cover myriad subjects and themes – and were shot on mobile phones (or tablets).
One title will screen before most Festival features.
