French Film Festival UK 2017

La Fête du Cinema: Learning Through Cinema

The 25th edition of the only festival entirely dedicated to Francophone films in the UK is taking place through November until 17 December! The French Film Festival UK involves leading independent cinemas from Inverness to London to offer the crème de la crème of French-speaking films.

A diverse programme with more than 40 titles for all preferences including documentaries, boulevard hits, auteur choices, animation, classics or shorts, will give you the best chance to improve your understanding of different cultures and practise your language skills.

You will find highly-acclaimed films from the 2017 festival circuit such as the French drama Golden Years as well as productions such as This is Our Land, directed by Lucas Belvaux and focused on offering a different perspective about the recent French election. A special mention must made for the acclaimed biographies Marie Curie: the courage of knowledge, Gauguin and Rodin which explore the lives and circumstances of the these scientific and artistic legends.

Have a look at the French Film Festival screening dates and locations across the country (four of them in London) and keep an eye on the festival website for updates and guest appearances.

Bon Festival!
