French film festival update: here comes the extended version

ETERNITY_14Great news for Francophiles in Sydney and Melbourne: the 2017 Alliance Française French Film Festival has been extended in both cities until April 5. And if Sydneysiders still can’t get enough, don’t forget there are screenings in the suburbs of Parramatta and Casula from April 6-9 and 8-9 respectively.

Here is the amended schedule. I have included all starting dates, so you can roughly plan ahead for next year too.

  • Sydney (March 7-April 5)
  • Melbourne (March 8-April 5)
  • Canberra (March 9-April 4)
  • Perth (March 15-April 5)
  • Brisbane (March 16-April 9)
  • Adelaide (March 30-April 23)
  • Hobart (March 30-April 8)
  • Parramatta (April 6-9)
  • Casula (April 8-9)

Go here for films and session times: the 2017 Alliance Française French Film Festival.

The image is from Éternité (Eternity), the first film in the French language from Vietnamese-born director Tran Anh Hung of The Scent of Green Papaya fame. It examines the lives of three generations of an aristocratic family, and stars what Variety calls “an embarrassment of great actresses” (as does the whole festival itself), including Audrey Tautou (above), Bérénice Bejo, Mélanie Laurent and Irène Jacob.
