The 17th IFI French Film Festival will run from November 16th – 27th this year. Programme details will be announced in early October.

The French Film Festival is the IFI’s flagship festival and this year’s edition will be the 17th since its foundation. Previous Festivals have attracted some of the most distinguished names in French cinema including Juliette Binoche, Arnaud Desplechin, Jane Birkin, Anna Karina, Patrice Leconte, Jeanne Moreau, Nicolas Philibert and Agnès Varda. Last year we welcomed one of France’s most important and popular writer-directors, Jacques Audiard to the festival whose recent success at Cannes caps two decades of extraordinary achievement in film-making. Countless important French films have had their Irish premieres  at the Festival including Jacques Audiard’s Dheepan, Michael Haneke’s Amour and Hidden, Nicolas Philibert’s Être et avoir, Jean-Luc Godard’s Socialism and Xavier Beauvoir’s Of Gods and Men.
