The Alliance Française French Film Festival, which celebrates its 27th annual showing this year, is coming to town to show off the best of France’s cinematic triumphs from March 31 to April 24.
The Festival has been a major annual event across Australia, with it being founded in Sydney back in 1989 to celebrate contemporary French films. Admissions reached almost 160,000 in Adelaide last year, meaning almost 1 in 10 people across the city attended the big screen event.
Cinema lovers will be spoilt for choice at this year’s Festival, with dozens of films on offer including Mon Roi, which won the Critics’ Prize award this year after being chosen by a panel of five Aussie critics.
Each film will be shown at Palace Nova Eastend on Rundle Street on a daily basis, with Rosalie Blum being shown on opening night at 7pm. Meanwhile, a restored version of Contempt will be screened for one time only on closing night at 7pm.
Tickets for standard screenings cost $19.50 each for adults, $17 for concession, $15.50 for under 25’s, $15 for Palace Movie Club members and $14.50 for children under 12.
Opening night tickets cost $55 for Palace Movie Club members and $60 for non-members, which include drinks, canapés and access to the opening night party following the screening. Closing night tickets cost $25 for Palace Movie Club members and $30 for non-members.
You can find out more information or purchase tickets from the Alliance Française French Film Festival's website.
