24th Tour de Cine Francés in Mexico: still the biggest French film festival in the world!
Seven French features will hitch a ride with the 24th French Film Tour in Mexico, an incredible cinema caravan that will criss-cross Mexico and Central America from October 8.
With more than 300,000 admissions at the end of its 2019 edition (the absolute record remains 420,000 admissions tallied in 2018), the French Film Tour in Mexico continues to be a genuine cultural and popular institution in Mexico, and is also becoming one in Central America, since the event started touring there several years ago. The sélection visits more than 70 cities in Mexico, and then heads for Costa Rica, Salvador, Guatemala, Honduras, Nicaragua, and Panama (the program in Central America will be confirmed depending on any Covid-19 related restrictions). And unfortunately this year, due to the coronavirus, the tour will not extend its journey to Argentina or Chili, as it has done in past editions.
Jointly organized by the Mexican distribution company of French films Nueva Era, the Cinepolis, movie theater chain, the Alliances Françaises network in the participating countries, and the Ambassade, each year the Tour de Cine Francés marks the launch of the film season in Mexico, which usually begins in September but which was shifted to October, following the progressive reopening of cinemas.
The 2020 program includes seven films, as is the case every year, and offers a way to see a different kind of cinema for many spectators whose loyalty has been unalterable for more than twenty years.
The artists related to the films fully supported the Tour by participating in a virtual press conference organized at UniFrance: Sarah Suco, Camille Cottin, Nicolas Boukhrief, Pablo Pauly, Léo Karmann, Benjamin Voisin, and Cédric Klapisch hence responded to questions from thirty Mexican journalists.
