The annual IFI French Film Festival will once again bring the very best of French cinema to Dublin with a sumptuous line-up featuring work from the Dardenne brothers, Catherine Deneuve, Christophe Honoré and Abdellatif Kechiche, and buzzing with special guests including glamourous leading-lady Sandrine Kiberlain, leading director Claude Miller and veteran character actor Jean-Pierre Darroussin.
The programme contains the best of new French cinema as well as a chance to rediscover the work of some of its great talents. A look beyond the highlights reveals a rich and extensive line-up featuring 21 Irish premieres and many of the standout films from this year’s Cannes and Venice film festivals. The Festival is also proud to present a host of special guests introducing and discussing their work.
With such a diverse programme there should be something for every taste at this year’s festival. Fellow Francophiles will find me darting between screenings at every available opportunity!
