2012 Alliance Française French Film Festival

The Festival with that certain ‘je ne sais quoi’ returns to Cinemas around the country!

Launching the 2012 Festival will be DECLARATION OF WAR (La guerre est déclarée) a powerful tale selected as France’s official submission for the 2012 Academy Awards. Based on real-life events, DECLARATION OF WAR is the compelling tale of a young Parisian couple whose carefree existence is suddenly shattered by an unexpected twist of fate.

A massive box office success in its native France, this is just one of the fantastic 46 films and documentaries on offer in this year’s line-up, which will also include a closing night presentation of François Truffault’s 1980 classic, THE LAST METRO starring Catherine Deneuve, Gérard Depardieu and Jean Poiret. Winner of 10 César Awards, THE LAST METRO embodies all that is great about French cinema and, like the Festival, has stood the test of time.

Approaching its 23rd sensational year, the festival offers an ambitious national program over 5 weeks including 40+ films - action, romance, comedy, thrillers, children’s films, animation and documentaries - which have been commercially released in France the previous year.

With more than 130,000 attendees last year, the Alliance Française French Film Festival has become one of the most important film events in Australia and the largest festival of French cinema in the world, outside of France!
