French Film Festival
6 Nov, 2020 @ 8:00 am – 22 Nov, 2020 @ 5:00 pm
The French Film Festival returns from 6 to 22 November 2020, with its biggest line-up of 37 feature films. Presented as part of the vOilah! France Singapore Festival 2020, the longest-running foreign film festival in Singapore continues to celebrate the best of French storytelling and share them with local movie-goers.
The festival’s line up of 37 films captures the diversity of French cinema that is expressed through a kaleidoscope of genres from emotional drama films to irreverent comedies, and fantastical animated movies for kids to hard-hitting documentaries.
Following the special selection of films last year that cast a spotlight on the role of empowered women in French cinema, more than half of the films in this year’s line-up is either produced by a female director or follows the story of strong female characters.
Fans of French cinema are in for a treat as the French Film Festival will feature 20 new movies that are fresh from the box office in France, including some which have yet to be released. This gives local audiences the unique opportunity to experience the new wave of contemporary, ground-breaking innovation in French storytelling ahead of the rest of the world.
Apart from new films, The Projector will also be presenting a line of critically-acclaimed French classics Cleo from 5 to 7, Contempt and The Umbrellas of Cherbourg. These films are specially selected by The Projector to provoke thoughts and conversations around important issues in our society, and to introduce the golden-era of La Nouvelle Vague in the 1960s to Singaporeans.
In addition, the festival will also be offering ‘The Best of French Film Festival’ for the first time this year. This section is presented by both Shaw Theatres and The Projector as a specially curated selection of 12 films from the current and past editions of the festival that people can enjoy in the comforts of their own home.
