French Film Festival hits town

While the thought of subtitles can be a little off-putting the quality of movies makes a visit to this year’s French Film Festival very enticing. New Farm’s Palace Cinemas again hosts the Alliance Francais festival from Thursday 22nd March through to Friday 28th. These aren’t films you’ll rent for $2 a week at your local video shop, with a variety of well acclaimed offerings and 22 films making their Queensland debut. Opening night features ‘Mr French Actor’ himself Gérard Depardieu in The Singer, a “tender and poignant romance”.

And mark April 26th to 29th in your calendar now for the Goethe-Institut’s German Film Festival, also playing at New Farm.
