Celebrating its 26th edition in 2015, the French Film Festival is a highly anticipated and extremely popular event on the Australian cultural calendar.

The annual festival is a collaboration between the Embassy of France in Australia and six Alliances Françaises around the country. It is not only the biggest film festival in Australia; it is also the biggest festival of French films outside of France.

Each year, it curates a selection of the best contemporary French films, including comedies, dramas, documentaries and much more.

French culture, and in particular French cinema, has never been more popular in Australia than it is right now and is a great opportunity to experience the latest sophisticated, vibrant and daring films from France.
