French Film Festival 2021

Experience French culture from the comfort of your nearest Palace Cinema with the Alliance Fran├žaise French Film Festival, screening in Melbourne from 3-31 March! The 2021 line-up includes 37 exciting French-language films, nine of which are making their world premieres in Australia during the festival.

Artistic director Philippe Platel presides over an event that will again showcase the best in contemporary French cinema, highlighting the nation’s cultural flashpoints of fashion, music, history, literature and social issues. The lineup spans the French countryside, tough streets of the Parisian fringe, the suburbia of Quebec and the Afghan capital, through 49 features and documentaries, and two TV shows – many of which are Australian premieres.
