The French Film Festival

12th December - 15th December

The French Film Festival UK is the only festival dedicated to French and Francophone cinema, embracing French and Francophone cinema in all its diversity, featuring a bumper programme bursting with variety and vitality.

The 27th edition runs from 1 November – 15 December, showing more than 50 films in 35 towns and cities across the UK. Four films will be coming to Watershed, Bristol from 12–15 December.

The films featured are:

Happy Birthday | Fête de Famille (N/C 15+)
Family relations unravel to wonderfully excruciating comic and dramatic effect in this all-star ensemble piece from versatile French writer-director and here, co-star, Cédric Kahn.

Oh Mercy | Roubaix, une lumière (N/C 15+)
A fictionalised adaptation of the 2008 French TV documentary Roubaix, which followed a determined police officer and his colleagues in the economically depressed town of Roubaix, near Lille.

Portrait of a Lady on Fire | Portrait de la jeune fille en feu (N/C 18+)
A vivid portrait of the stolen romantic relationship between two young women.

Young Ahmed | Le Jeune Ahmed (N/C 15+)
Belgium’s Dardenne brothers Jean-Pierre and Luc, always sympathetic to stories of troubled youth, take a controversial turn in this portrait of a radicalised Muslim teen.
