Thank you for entering the 2017 Alliance Francaise French Film Festival competition.
The competition is now closed and winners have been notified.

 

From March 7, the 28th edition of the Festival will travel around Australia bringing the best in contemporary French blockbuster and independent films to seven cities: Sydney, Melbourne, Adelaide, Canberra, Brisbane, Perth and Hobart.

For the full program and information, visit http://www.affrenchfilmfestival.org

This year's festival opens with The Odyssey, Jérôme Salle’s dazzling biopic that will sweep you up in its sails as it follows the chaotic life of celebrity oceanographer Jacques Cousteau. There’s something for everyone with a dazzling array of comedy, girl power, centre stage, on-the-road films and more. The festival closes with writer-director Nadège Loiseau’s uproarious and emotive debut feature about a reluctant 49-year-old mother-to-be, A Bun in the Oven.

“You will contemplate for the Opening Night, laugh for the Closing night; and in between, you will travel the world and through time, you will dance and sing, you will fall in love, and you will dream. French cinema, more vibrant and alive than ever, is for every single one of you” – Philippe Platel (Festival Artistic Director)
