French Film Festival in Cairns
THE much-awaited 2021 French Film Festival will celebrate its tenth year with a selection of mouth-watering films.
This popular event, organised by the Alliance Française de Cairns (French Alliance of Cairns) will screen for three days at the Event Cinemas Cairns from May 21-23.
Alliance vice president Anais Aligand said the festival would provide a rare opportunity to enjoy a taste of French movies not being released for general viewing in the region.
“After a year off due to the pandemic, the festival is coming back strong with an extraordinary programme, rich and ambitious, which will transport you across the world despite the obstacles, and make you laugh, fall in love, feel and taste the flavours of France – like an ideal journey on the roads of France,” she said.
With more than 1400 attendees in 2019, the festival is even more awaited this year.
Since 2003, the French Film Festival has been a huge success in Australia: collectively it is now the largest French Film Festival outside of France and organised by the Alliance Française in each capital city, as well as many regional centres, such as Cairns.
The movies selected are all crowd pleasing, accessible films that will appeal to all tastes. All movies have English sub-titles. The festival delivers on two fronts: stars and a vibrant array of big screen stories.
Come along and soak up the French atmosphere whilst enjoying a pre-screening glass of sparkling wine on the opening night (Friday May 21 at 8pm) with Night Shift, or choose any other movies.
