8th MyFrenchFilmFestival @ Online
Jan 19 – Feb 19 all-day
8th MyFrenchFilmFestival @ Online

This year the Festivals offers you 30 new, unreleased films organised into six thematic sections: Wacky and offbeat stories in WTF…rench!?, life-changing journeys in Hit the Road!, the sometimes painful, or comical, transition from childhood to adulthood in Teen Stories, the (at times homicidal) obsessions of disturbing characters in French and Furious, love stories of the kind you only find in France in Love “à la Française”, and, finally, a selection of innovative works in New Horizons.

Our recommendations include Ava (Lea Mysius, 2017) and 1:54 (Yan England, 2017).

  • Only 200 tickets per film available;
  • Each film starts playing the day after their premiere in Rotterdam for Bright Future while IFFR titles will air at the same time as their premiere;
  • Each film is available until the 20th of February 2018; and
  • No booking is possible: the tickets are given out in a first-come-first-served basis.

Our top pick from the event is Tavinho Teixeira’s Sol Alegria.
