25th Tour de Cine Francés in Mexico: still the biggest French film festival in the world!
As is the case every year, seven French feature films will set out to conquer audiences in Mexico, Central American, Argentina, and Chile from October 14, 2021, in the highly popular Tour de Cine Francés, which is celebrating its 25th anniversary this year.
Jointly organized by the Mexican distribution company of French films Nueva Era Films, the movie theater chain Cinépolis, the Alliance Française network, and the French Embassy in Mexico, the Tour de Cine Francés is held over one month and takes a convoy of films across Mexico and to a large part of Latin America. Each year, the event attracts around 300,000 spectators, with the all-time record attendance of 420,000 spectators registered in 2018. After a reduced version of the festival in 2020 due to restrictions caused by the pandemic, the 2021 selection will once again visit more than 70 cities in Mexico, Costa Rica, El Salvador, Guatemala, Honduras, Nicaragua, and Panama, and finally Argentina and Chile.
This year, there will be no artists attending the event physically, but a number of actors and directors brought their support to the film tour by taking part in an online press junket organized at UniFrance: they included Stéphane Foenkinos and David Foenkinos, as well as Benoît Magimel, who answered questions from around thirty Mexican journalists.
