Win tickets to the French Film Festival

Replete with dramas, thrillers, romantic comedies, haunting stories of bygone years, and, as MGM Studios once proclaimed ''more stars than there are in heaven'', the 2017 Alliance Française French Film Festival will celebrate multiple Première screenings and fabulous special events. http://www.affrenchfilmfestival.org  Returning to Palace Cinemas from March until mid-April, this exuberant event is held by the Alliance Française in association with the Embassy of France in Australia and the support of esteemed, Principal Sponsor, Renault Australia. For the Festival’s 28th season, Artistic Director, Philippe Platel, who is celebrating his first year at the helm, has sourced a bewitching selection of 43 features and two documentaries that celebrates the ‘crème de la crème’ of contemporary French cinema by blending the work of established filmmakers with that of France’s cinematic luminaries of tomorrow. Courtesy of Madman Entertainment, The Odyssey (L'odyssée), a fascinating biopic that tells the tempestuous story of celebrity oceanographer and filmmaker, Jacques Cousteau, will open the 2017 Festival. Directed by Jérôme Salle and starring Lambert Wilson and Audrey Tautou this dazzling epic, with stunning cinematography, will transport audiences to the underwater realm that Cousteau dedicated his life to exploring. And Closing Night Festival devotees will be entranced by the uproarious romantic comedy, A Bun in the Oven (Le petit locataire) from first-time director Nadège Loiseau, starring the radiant Karin Viard as Nicole, a reluctant, 49 year-old mother-to-be. Already overloaded with the responsibility of managing four family generations under one roof, Nicole’s life couldn’t be any more hectic… that is until she discovers she’s pregnant! But in a series of wonderfully comedic scenes, Nicole learns for the very first time, how to put herself first. Visit http://www.affrenchfilmfestival.org for more film and event information.
