La Famille Bélier wins the Audience Prize at the French Film Festival in Japan
La Famille Bélier was presented as opening film on June 26 at the French Film Festival in Japan organized by UniFrance, which has just been held in Tokyo in the presence of French movie personalities including Eric Lartigau and Louane Emera.
This award is good news for the film by Eric Lartigau, which continues its highly successful international run (around 3 million admissions registered abroad to date) after a triumphant performance on screens in France. It is scheduled for release in Japan on October 31, with its distribution handled by the Japanese operator The Klockworx.
The film's screening, which was held at the Yurakucho Asahi Hall in Tokyo to rousing applause, was followed by a meeting with audiences hosted by Isabelle Giordano, executive director of UniFrance, at which Eric Lartigau and his lead actress answered numerous questions from local moviegoers. This Q & A session featured a highly emotional exchange between Louane and hearing-impaired spectators in sign language.
Eric Lartigau is currently in Kyoto to present his film and complete his mini-tour of Japan.
