Event presentation

The French Film Festival of Helvetia (FFFH) will present its 6th edition from September 15th to 19th 2010. The festival in collaboration with Swiss distributors and Unifrance makes French cinema travel through Switzerland. Biel/Bienne, the largest bilingual city of Switzerland, makes a bridge between the Swiss French and the Swiss German cultures using the cinema as a universal language. The FFFH dedicates its programming to French films winking at Swiss cinema too.
For five days, about 30 films, many of which are international or world previews, are unveiled in original version subtitled in German. Some of them are not released in Switzerland (Section Découverte). The Festival starts with the Children’s Day, a special day devoted to fun and pleasure for our youngest spectators. Then, the event takes the symbolism of the three-colored French flag.
Throughout its five-year history , more than 120 professionals of the film industry have converged in Biel/Bienne to present more than 140 feature films and 30 short films. The FFFH is aiming at making this bilingual city the capital of French and French-speaking cinema in Switzerland.
Everyday, the festival gives the spectators the chance to attend directly after the screening a special moment of exchange and encounter with professionals, directors and actors. One of the goals of these open discussions (which are simultaneously translated into German) is to bring the Swiss German and Swiss French cultures together. Moreover professionals really enjoy discussing with a bilingual audience. Energy needs of the Festival are entirely covered by renewable energies.
