2020 Alliance Française French Film Festival To Relaunch On Bastille Day!

The Alliance Française French Film Festival will be resuming its 31st season on Bastille Day, from 14 July to 4 August.

Following its premature closure due to the COVID-19 health crisis, Alliance Francaise confirms that the French Film Festival will be resuming its 31st season on Bastille Day, from 14 July to 4 August, at Palace Cinemas and associated venues.

Returning to 7 cities throughout Australia, this beloved cultural event has to date confirmed a standout selection of 28 features from the original March line-up, and is proudly presented by the Alliance Française in association with the Embassy of France in Australia, Unifrance Films and screening partner, Palace Cinemas.

And with the safety and well-being of the patrons uppermost, they confirm that all participating cinemas will be adhering to strict social distancing and hygiene standards throughout the Festival in line with COVID-19 safety protocols.

Two outstanding films, which embody the spirit of optimism and reinvention, have been selected to bookend the July relaunch. For this incarnation of the Festival, first night audiences will be treated to the much fêted La Belle Époque, starring acting great Daniel Auteuil as Victor, a disillusioned man who is given the opportunity to recreate the great loveaffair of his youth in the hope that it can restore his future, whilst The Bare Necessity (Perdrix), a whimsical tale of a family forced to re-evaluate their stagnant ways and finally live life to the fullest, will bid adieu to the 2020 season.
