French films at AFI FEST in Los Angeles

AFI FEST will be held in Los Angeles, in the heart of Hollywood, from November 5 through 12, 2015. The festival is organized by the American Film Institute, as is its partner event, the American Film Market (AFM), which will take place during the same period.

Hosted by the American Film Institute, AFI FEST is one of the only large-scale North American film festivals offering free access to the general public. Dedicated to international auteur films, and well-positioned in the run-up to the Oscars, this event is closely associated with the AFM, the world's biggest film market, which is held at the same time a few kilometers further west in Santa Monica.

Once again this year, the various film selections at AFI FEST will offer viewers the chance to see numerous French productions and co-productions, accompanied by a delegation of French artists, including Jacques Audiard, Alice Winocour, Louise Bourgoin, Deniz Gamze Ergüven (and her leading actresses Gunes Sensoy, Doga Zeynep Doguslu, Elit Iscan, Tugba Sunguroglu & Ilayda Akdogan), Kent Jones, and Jayro Bustamante.

Melvil Poupaud will also be in attendance for the gala premiere of By the Sea by Angelina Jolie, while Juliette Binoche will present The 33, an American-Chilean film by Patricia Riggen.
