    Members' News  | 

    Alliance Francaise Classic Film Festival 2017 will be held from the 31th of August to the 3rd of September. 

    The spotlight shines on Jean-Paul Belmondo, Bébel le magnifique!

    In celebration of the enduring cinema of France, The Alliance Française Classic Film Festival is returning for its anticipated third edition.

    In association with Palace Cinemas, the Alliance Française and Studiocanal will again hold this evocative event, which parallels the renowned Alliance Française French Film Festival. This year, it will take place in Sydney, Melbourne, Canberra and Perth from late August onwards.

    The Alliance Française Classic Film Festival aims to showcase masterpieces of French cinema, highlighting an actor or director who has made an indelible contribution to France’s celebrated film industry. 

    The 2017 season will focus on the iconic Jean-Paul Belmondo, showcasing restored versions of 6 of his most renowned films from 1961 to 1974.  Considered a key figure of the French New Wave, Belmondo’s career of almost 60 years has been internationally fêted through Awards such as the César, the Golden Lion and the Golden Camera, a Career Achievement Award at the Los Angeles Film Critics Association Awards, and an honorary Palme d'Or from the Cannes Film Festival. In recognition of his influence beyond the confines of cinema, Belmondo was also honoured with the National Order of the Legion of Honour in 2007 and the National Order of Merit in 2017.

    Between thriller and drama, comedy and adventure, audiences will be invited to savour these films as they were meant to be experienced on the big screen. You will rediscover ‘Bébel’s’ magnificence in the company of actors Charles Boyer, Serge Reggiani, Emmanuelle Riva, Gérard Depardieu, Françoise Dorléac, Raymond Devos, François Périer, Anna Karina, and many more.

    The Festival will present 6 films in 5 cinemas across 4 Australian cities, encompassing 30 sessions, including an Opening Night event in each city.
