French Film Festival UK is the only event on these shores that reaches a truly international audience of affluent, well-educated Francophiles.

Our audience love visiting France and other French-speaking countries to discover hidden treasures, stay in beautiful hotels, experience fine cuisine and to immerse themselves in local culture and the French way of life. Often they make their discoveries first through cinema!

We welcome inquiries from prospective advertisers and sponsors who want to use the Festival as a niche platform.

There is no time like the present to become involved in the 2015 edition in November.
