Alliance Française de Cork is delighted to roll out the red carpet for the 23rd edition of this exciting and much-loved French Film Festival. The Festival is an exceptional opportunity to experience cinema in a personal and close-up sense in the presence of such remarkable talent as our legendary star guest this year Pierre Étaix, Manuel Chantre together with a host of other multi-talented guests. We express our deep gratitude to main sponsor Bord Gáis Energy – a festival of this size and scale would not be possible without their invaluable support. – Nora Callanan, Festival Director.
