Celebrating its 27th year in 2016, the Alliance Française French Film Festival is a highly anticipated and an extremely popular event on the Australian cultural calendar.
It is not only the biggest foreign film Festival in Australia; it is also the largest celebration 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 nine weeks in seven cities: Sydney, Melbourne, Adelaide, Canberra, Brisbane, Perth and Hobart.
The festival also includes glamorous opening nights, Q&As and special events with renowned figures of French film. With more than 157,000 admissions in 2015, the Alliance Française French Film Festival’s 26th edition was its most successful to date and this year will be no different.
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.
For the fourth time running, Polyglot Group is proud to be back as a Red Carpet sponsor for the 2016 French Film Festival in support of the Alliance Francaise!
