7th March 2018

With a huge selection of films showcasing the best of French cinema, the 29th Alliance Française French Film Festival has a huge range of comedies, dramas, romances, historical pieces, documentaries, thrillers and even sci-fi epics.

Excitingly, the 2018 festival line-up also includes, for the first time, an LGBTIQ+ strand in celebration of the 40th Sydney Gay & Lesbian Mardi Gras and Australia’s recent ‘Yes’ vote for same-sex marriage.
