Thank you to everyone who made this year's Festival another smash hit!
As we bid farewell to another spectacular season of the Alliance Française French Film Festival, we would like to take a moment to thank each and every one of you who attended one - or many - films and special events. In Sydney alone we welcomed 52,709 patrons, with many of our films garnering numerous awards and rave reviews.
We would like to also like to extend our deepest gratitude to our wonderful Festival sponsors for making this special 32nd season possible. Thank you Peugeot, Avène, L'Or, TV5 Monde, Klorane, Magimix, Gouvernment de la Nouvelle-Calédonie, BNP Paribas, The Islands of Tahiti, Champagne Duperry, Jean Paul Gaultier; as well as our supporting sponsors Sofitel Darling Harbour, Sofitel Wentworth, M. Chapoutier, City of Sydney, Decante this, Four Frogs Crêperie, Lycée Condorcet, The Sydney Opera House and Monet & Friends. We also thank our partners Uni France, The Saturday Paper, SBS World Movies and Time Out; and our exhibiting partner Palace Cinemas.
As always, we are so appreciative of the wonderful community of Francophiles and Francophones and we cannot wait to return in 2022 to deliver another dose of French cinema magic.
In the meantime, scroll down for some photographs of our Opening Night, which took place in the dappled sunlit courtyard of Notre Dame,
Chippendale. The evening included an elegant reception with wine, canapés and live music, followed by a screening of the stunning drama Eiffel.
