Melbourne Event: Alliance Française Film Festival 2013

It's that magical time of year again when Melbourne gathers round to revel in the crème de la crème of French cinema... Oui! C'est vrai! The Alliance Française Film Festival is on again!

Les Enfants du Paradis will close this year's
AF French Film Festival

Kicking off in Melbourne on Wednesday 6 March and closing on Sunday 24 March, the festival takes place across Kino Cinemas (on Collins Street) and Palace Cinemas (including Como, Balwyn, Westgarth and Brighton Bay).

As always, there is a breathtaking array of films to inspire and delight and some juicy special events, including the Opening Night film Haute Cuisine, starring the comedy legend Catherine Frot (you may recognise her from such classics as The Dinner Game) and the Closing Night film, considered one of France's greatest ever mastepieces, Les Enfants du Paradis.

Cheese and wine will follow the Melbourne première of The Man Who Laughs (directed by THE Gerard Dépardieu, preview below), cockatils and patisserie will accompany The Cherry on the Cake and chocolates will be supplied for a special screening of the historical drama Farewell, My Queen, where a prize will also be awarded for the best dressed French king or queen.

Want to go as a La Trobe French Club group? Maybe we can! It has been a little tradition of ours dating all the way back to 2011, so it would be very chouette to keep it up this year. Keep an ear to the ground in the first weeks of semester for details as they arise!
