Can’t get enough of baguettes, pain au chocolat or the thought of being by the Eiffel Tower? Immerse yourself in the French culture by catching a French film from the 9th to 19th November.
The French Film Festival is back this year with a diverse presentation of French films to indulge Singaporeans’ love affair with French cinema.
I got a chance to attend a preview screening of the festival’s film highlight Ce Qui Nous Lie- Back to Burgundy by acclaimed director Cedric Klapisch and was left yearning for more! Being an avid learner of the French language, I was beyond thrilled to be able to appreciate French cinema within the shores of Singapore. Regardless if you are a francophone (one with the ability to speak French) or not, you will be able to resonate with the films as they encompass common themes of love, loss, and hope.
On top of the weekly movie screening at Alliance Française de Singapour, this festival will be providing us the opportunity to tap into the rich vein of French films produced in the recent years. Each film contains English subtitles , great for those who do not comprehend French. You don’t have to worry about the language because storytelling goes beyond language boarders. In addition, you might be able to find cultural appreciation and exchanges with the French through this Festival as well!
16 compelling French films will be showcased in three venues-Shaw Theatres Lido, Alliance Française de Singapour and The Projector. In line with the theme this year "Providing a story for everyone", be spoilt with an extensive genre ranging from sci-fi thriller, comedy, romance, fantasy which guarantee something for everyone!
Feature films this year includes Ce Qui Nous Lie - Back to Burgundy, Seuls and Madame. These two are selected by Shaw's Theatres for extended promotional release.
