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 ?

 

PARTNER VENUES STILL OPEN!

We’re over the moon that four of our partner venues in Scotland have been allowed to remain open for the moment and are screening Festival films – Inverness Eden Court; Oban Phoenix (for the first time); Dumfries Robert Burns Cinema. Bravo!

For the others commiserations – but we’re on stand by to reschedule when conditions allow in December and January.

THE FRENCH FILM FESTIVAL GOES ONLINE

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!
