1058 French Film Festival 2019

13 March - 10 April 2019

Each new year heralds a sense of excitement and never more so than 2019, which marks the 30th anniversary of Australia’s most tantalising multi-cultural movie event, the Alliance Française French Film Festival! 

For such a momentous birthday, artistic director, Philippe Platel, has lovingly selected a superlative line-up of 54 features and documentaries – the biggest in the festival’s proud history: 30 years of joy, laughter, unexpected journeys, surreal encounters and sometimes even tears.

Visit the Festival official website at: www.affrenchfilmfestival.org or see a selection of highlights and events below. Programme now available online here and in hard copy at all Luna Palace Cinema sites.

The Alliance Française French Film Festival is screening at the Windsor Cinema, Luna on SX and for the first time at Camelot Outdoor Cinema.
