It’s a wrap for 2014!
Proudly sponsored by L’Oréal Paris, the Alliance Française French Film Festival has firmly established itself as the largest French cultural event on New Zealand’s national cultural calendar. Following more than a five-fold increase in attendance figures since 2012, the festival is now one of the biggest French film festivals outside of France in the entire world and a diverse showcase of the best contemporary French-language cinema.
In 2014, the festival returned to eleven cities nationwide from 20 February to 23 April 2014 and welcomed over 30,000 spectators.
2014 marked the festival’s largest and most diverse film selection to date. The selection, which featured 27 films, included successful French titles that had recently premiered at prestigious international film festivals.
Festival organisers were delighted to welcome two international guests to the 2014 festival: French actor Pierre Rochefort and Swiss director Yves Yersin for promotion of their respective films Going Away and Blackboard. The two visits contributed to most effective press coverage across the country and significantly elevated the festival to the world stage.
Dates for the 2015 festival will be announced in the coming months.
