View Details

 

The closing credits have started to roll on the 28th French Film Festival UK!

Despite challenging circumstances, the Festival team are delighted to have been able to screen more than 15 films in eight venues across the UK. Our first online festival fff @ home received an enthusiastic response.  Whether in cinema, or from the comfort of home, we hope you enjoyed this year’s edition.

If you were fortunate enough to see Festival films on the big screen, we’re keen to have your thoughts on this year’s programme. Complete our survey by 7 January 2021 to be entered into a prize draw to win a selection of five French DVDs.

In the meantime we wish you a Merry Christmas and all the best for 2021.

PARTNER VENUES STILL OPEN!

We’re over the moon that some partners venues in Scotland have been allowed to remain open (Inverness Eden Court, Oban Phoenix, and Dumfries Robert Burns Film Centre) while Tier 2 restrictions in England mean that London Ciné Lumière, Lewes The Depot,  Chichester Cinema at New Park, and Richmond The Station in Yorkshire are reprising their Festival programmes.

IT’S NOT ALL DOOM AND GLOOM HERE AT THE FRENCH FILM FESTIVAL
Far from it.
Just look at our smiling faces.

So what have we got to smile about ?

 

THE FRENCH FILM FESTIVAL GOES ONLIE

If you’re suffering withdrawal symptoms (and we can understand why) then get ready for our Covid-busting online festival – fff @ home. Tickets go on sale on 13 December for seven UK premieres, an amazing selection of shorts and appearances by film-makers. Check out the array on this site, make your choices, and plan your evenings ahead.

ACT NOW FOR CLIMATE CHANGE POSTERS

Students from Edinburgh College of Art have responded to the call to design a poster as part of the collaboration with the Mobile Film Festival – and we’ve put them all online so you can pick a winner for the Audience Award. Despite everything the students have been creative and inspirational, fired up by the theme of climate change.

LEARNING PROGRAMME: LE CINÉMA À L’ÉCOLE

And thousands of young people have been watching curated selections in the classroom in line with the guidelines.

How lucky they are! 

 

 

VIVE LE CINÉMA!

We’ve been heartened by the support of colleagues from all over the country and elsewhere the goodwill and fidelity of funders and sponsors and the film-makers and actors who have rallied round. When the great Isabelle Huppert offered an opening message of welcome to audiences we were so grateful and humbled. Do let us know you’re out there and engage with us on social media – we’d be so pleased to hear from you. No wonder we’re smiling through. Vive le cinéma!
