Alliance Française French Film Festival 2015 Line-Up

Alliance Française French Film Festival 2015 Line-Up

| On 13, Feb 2015

The 2015 Alliance Francaise French Film festival is set to showcase an enthralling selection of 49 feature films, most of which will be screened for the first time in Australia. The festival takes places across 8 cities in various Palance Cinema venues from early March until mid-April.

 

Gemma Bovery- AFFFF

 

Some highly anticipated features of the festival include Gemma Bovery, a film directed by the talented Anne Fontaine (Coco Before Chanel). The film tells the story of an English couple named Gemma and Charles Bovery who move to a small town in Normandy only to become the objects of obsession for a local resident who seems to believe that the couple too closely resemble his favorite fictional characters from the Flaubert novel, Madame Bovary. The film captivated audiences at the 2014 Toronto International Film Festival and is sure to have audiences laughing at the AFFFF. And for the closing ceremony, audiences can look forward to revisiting the modern French classic, Paris, Je T’aime. For those unfamiliar with the film, Paris, Je T’aime takes audience through 20 short films inspired by the theme of love from a number of acclaimed French directors such as Bruno Podalydès, Olivier Assayas, Gus Van Sant and Ethan and Joel Cohen.
