FRENCH FILM FESTIVAL AOTEAROA


Bienvenue à la Fête du cinéma français en Aotearoa.

After the success of last year’s festival where we saw record attendance, we’re excited to present 21 of the best French films to NZ audiences this June/July. It was a strong year for French cinema, despite the obvious production problems, and we are proud to premiere a French box office no. 1: OSS 117: From Africa with Love. Our opening night film A Mermaid in Paris invites you to experience a refreshingly original vision, where our protagonist rescues a mermaid who has washed up on the banks of the river Seine. We have included some of the funniest comedies released in France - including Happy 50, Murder Party & Rumba Therapy - that will have you in fits. We’ve also highlighted some of the strongest dramas in Maigret, Everything Went Fine, and The Young Lovers. For our foodies we have The Kitchen Brigade, and for our younger cinema lovers the star-studded reboot of Little Nicholas’ Treasure is a great outing for the family. Whichever city or town you live in, we’re excited to present all 21 films at the Lumiere Christchurch at the simply beautiful Arts Centre.  Fergus Grady - FFF
