Presenting our 2018 Festival Poster

The holiday season has arrived and we would like to wish you all Joyeux Noël et une Bonne Année.

The French Film Festival elves are busy finalising the print programme and preparing for a fantastic celebration of French cinema, but before we ring in the holidays, we are delighted to reveal our bold and bright 2018 poster.

Celebrating the legacy of cinéma français, our 2018 poster features Louis Garrel and Stacy Martin in a still from Michel Hazanavicius’ Redoubtable (Le redoutable), a biographical drama about revolutionary director Jean-Luc Godard.


“Innovation, diversity, fresh talent, modernity and a rich film history – our 2018 Festival poster conveys what makes up France’s outstanding cinématographie.
Une femme et un homme invite for a dialogue – come along and enjoy the special experience the Festival offers!” says Festival director Dorothée Basel.

You can read more about Redoubtable (Le redoutable) and watch the trailer on the film page.

The full AF FFF 2018 programme will be available online from Thursday 8 February 2018. We look forward to sharing the joy of French cinema with you from 1 March – 18 April 2018 in 13 cities across New Zealand. Visit our Dates and Venues page for details.
