MyFrenchFilmFestival 2020

MyFrenchFilmFestival.com is an innovative concept that aims to shine a spotlight on new generation French-language filmmakers and to give internet users across the globe the chance to share their enthusiasm for French cinema. The festival returns from January 16 through February 16, 2020 with new films, new partner platforms, and film launches in movie theaters in various countries.

For the 10th edition of MyFrenchFilmFestival, 31 films are organized around six thematic sections. You'll see stories that blur the line between dream and reality in Is This Real?; a large dose of humor and the absurd in the Say Cheese! program; and depictions of armed conflicts and geopolitics past and present in On the Frontline. All About Women celebrates women in all their diversity, while Teen Spirit explores the emotional ups and downs of young people trying to find their bearings in the world. With Les Misérables by Ladj Ly representing France in the race for the Oscar for Best International Feature Film, we look back at portrayals of French suburbia in the Special Screenings section. And, for the first time, a program of silent animated films aimed at young audiences with My Little Zoo, along with a selection of innovative works grouped together in New Horizons.
