Alliance Francaise French Film Festival

Alliance Francaise French Film Festival

Following its premature closure due to the COVID-19 health crisis, we’re delighted to confirm that the Alliance Française
French Film Festival will be resuming its 31 st 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 our patrons uppermost, we 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 our July re-
launch. 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 love-
affair 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.
