Attention all cinéphiles and Cork French Film Festival followers: in March, Alliance Française de Cork will roll out the red carpet for the 27th Cork French Film Festival.
This nationally acclaimed festival, supported by the Arts Council, Cork City Council, and Le Cordon Bleu, screens the best of French feature films, documentaries, shorts, and retrospectives. The week long event is the ideal time to savour the best in French cinema while enjoying the unique French ambiance that the festival brings to Cork. Sounds from the organisers have all the indications that another cutting-edge programme is in the pipe line, so settle into your seats for a cinematic tour de force for this 27th edition!
The Artistic Director’s past line-up of stars and guests have included Agnes Varda, Pierre Etaix, Christophe Lambert, Jean Claude Carriere, Bertrand Tavernier, Claudie Ossard, Guillaume Laurant, Rosalie Varda-Demy. Last year welcomed famous actor and filmmaker Mathieu Amalric. This year’s special guest, and programme, will be announced at the festival launch this morning. Details to follow!
