The Alliance Française French Film Festival presents the best of contemporary and classic French cinema with 49 feature films and documentaries showing this year. 

Running from March 11 – April 8 in Perth, the films are set to screen at Palace Cinema Paradiso (Northbridge), Luna Palace Cinemas – Windsor (Nedlands) and Luna on SX (Fremantle).

Audrey Lureau, Managing Director of the Alliance Française Perth, shares her Top 5 festival picks:

The Extraordinary

An informal shelter in Paris for autistic youth, abandoned by a system unable to care for them, is put at risk when authorities target it for investigation.

School Life

Despite being thrown into the deep-end when transferred to her new job in Paris’ troubled northern suburbs, a young teacher enthusiastically supports her students in the hope of showing them a brighter future.

Invisibles

In this soul-enriching comedy, an illegal women’s shelter is earmarked for closure. When bureaucrats ignore their pleas for assistance they decide to fight back by turning to unorthodox methods of survival. From now on, everything is allowed!

Oh Mercy!

In this darkly compelling exposé of the human condition, the infallible Commissaire Daoud holds reign in the busy police station of a once prosperous town. Some cases are easy to solve, whereas others like the brutal murder of an elderly woman pose searing questions of presumptions of guilt and innocence.

Still from "In the Name of the Land." A middle-aged man holds a small boy to his chest in a comforting gesture.

In the Name of the Land

This powerful tale of resilience returns us to France in the late 70s. Pierre marries his sweetheart and takes over his father’s farm. Twenty years onward, Pierre is exhausted. With debt mounting, a life once satisfying begins to take an insidious toll on his family. They risk being torn apart by the property that binds them.
