Scheduled on three consecutive Mondays, the Summer of French Films program will give these films an opportunity to reach audiences in six provincial cities around the UK: Cambridge, Liverpool, Brighton, Oxford, Bradford, and York. As the films selected are yet to secure a distribution deal in the UK, this event will give them another chance to find a distributor across the Channel. A number of directors and actors will travel to the UK to present their films (Alix Delaporte for The Last Hammer Blow, Patrick Braoudé and Pierre Courrège forThe Statesman, and the producer Paulo Branco for Astragalus) at certain screenings (see the attached event program for details).
In addition to the Summer of French Films program, Unifrance will be providing an online extension. Between July 10 and August 10, 6 other films will be screened via the Vimeo on Demand platform at a rate of £2:
