Alliance Française French Film Festival

Following its premature closure due to the COVID-19 health crisis, the Alliance Française French Film Festival will be resuming its 31st season on Bastille Day, from 14 July to 4 August 2020, at Palace Cinemas and associated venues.

Returning to 7 cities throughout Australia, this beloved cultural event has to date confirmed a standout selection of 28 features from the original March 2020 line-up, and is proudly presented by the Alliance Française in association with the Embassy of France in Australia, Unifrance Films and screening partner, Palace Cinemas.

And with the safety and well-being of the patrons uppermost, they can confirm that all participating cinemas will be adhering to strict social distancing and hygiene standards throughout the Festival in line with COVID-19 safety protocols.
