Alliance Française French Film Festival

Celebrating its 26th edition in 2015, the Alliance Française French Film Festival is a highly anticipated and extremely popular event on the Australian cultural calendar.


The annual festival is a collaboration between the Embassy of France in Australia and six Alliances Françaises around the country. It is not only the biggest film festival in Australia; it is also the biggest festival of French films outside of France.


Each year, it curates a selection of the best contemporary French films, including comedies, dramas, documentaries and much more. Blockbusters and independent films alike screen over six weeks in seven cities: Sydney, Melbourne, Adelaide, Canberra, Brisbane, Byron Bay, and Perth. The festival also includes glamorous opening nights, Q&As and special events with renowned figures of French film.


French culture, and in particular French cinema, has never been more popular in Australia than it is right now. The Alliance Française French Film Festival audience includes Australians, French, Francophiles and movie buffs – all keen to experience the latest sophisticated, vibrant and daring films from France.


Having entered its second quarter century, the Alliance Française French Film Festival proudly continues its international celebration of the best new cinema from France.


For this 26th edition, attendees will have the opportunity to make movies, by participating in our Short Film Competition, for the chance to win a trip to Paris and see their work on the big screen during the festival.
