Alliance Française French Film Festival program is tres bien

The best of contemporary French cinema is set to arrive in Australia from 7th March – 23rd April.

The Alliance Française French Film Festival has revealed its 2023 program of contemporary French films. This marks the 34th edition of the largest celebration of French film outside of France, and it takes place in Australia from 7th March–23rd April.

The festival promises a ‘season of electrifying French storytelling,’ for the culturally curious and beyond.

Nicolas Bedos’ Masquerade, a dreamy Côte d’Azur drama starring Pierre Niney, Isabelle Adjani and Marine Vacth, opens the festival. In the weeks that follow audiences have a chance to see the latest French box office successes, as well as lesser-known tales of hope and resilience. Then, closing the festival out on a ‘bittersweet high’ is road trip flick Freestyle, directed by Didier Barcelo and featuring rising star Benjamin Voisin and Marina Foïs.
