AFI Film Festival features of a clutch of top French titles

UniFrance will accompany the cream of this year's French film crop to the next AFI FEST - 2014, which will take place November 6 through 13, 2014.

Since its creation in 1971, the AFI FEST - 2014, based in Los Angeles, has become one of the most important international cinema meetings in the USA. It's an event concerned with getting established talents to rub shoulders with rising auteurs, while also showcasing films in the running for the Oscar for Best Foreign Language Film. We note an exceptional fact: this year, French cinema is bringing three such films to the AFI: Saint Laurent for France, Timbuktu for Mauritania, and Gett, The Trial of Viviane Amsalem for Israel, all produced (or majority produced) by France. We'd also like to highlight the presence of Marion Cotillard, who will be alongside Luc and Jean-Pierre Dardenne for Two Days, One Night (a minority French coproduction).
