Building on the resounding success of last year's festival, this year the French Film Festival Aotearoa will feature 21 of the best films to come out of France in the past year. From comedy to drama, romance to family, there's something for all cinematic tastes at this popular cultural event.
The boldness, daring originality and poignant excellence of French cinema is showcased here with a generous line up of films to choose from. Highlights include A Mermaid in Paris, a refreshing and eccentric tale (or tail) of a musician who rescues a mermaid washed up on the banks of the Seine; French box office number 1 OSS 117: From Africa with Love; the hilarious and irreverent Happy 50, and Between Two Worlds, a story of betrayal and resilience starring the ever-charming Juliette Binoche.
The festival runs from 23 June - 10 July, and you can catch all of the films at Academy Gold Cinemas. Pick your favourites and book your tickets for the ultimate French cinema experience.
