French delegation well-received in London
The French Film Festival “Rendezvous with French Cinema” in London opened its doors yesterday, with screenings continuing until Sunday. This event is organized by Unifrance in association with the French Embassy and the Curzon Mayfair cinema.
An impressive delegation is in London for the event: Santiago Amigorena, Sabine Azéma, Georges Babluani and Temur Babluani, Juliette Binoche, Dany Boon, Stéphane Brizé, Guillaume Canet, Isabelle Carré, Amira Casar, Patrick Chesnais, François Cluzet, Anne Consigny, Marion Cotillard, Olivier Dahan, Emilie Dequenne, Bruno Dumont, Sara Forestier, Louis Garrel, Tony Gatlif, Xavier Giannoli, Christophe Honoré, Alanté Kavaïté, Joana Preiss, Tom Riley, and Tony Gatlif.
Over three days, these French artists will present their latest films to audiences, and take part in interviews with the British media, who have already offered the event wide coverage, with articles published in The Daily Mail, The Guardian, The Times, and The Independent.
La Vie en Rose, by Olivier Dahan opened the festival to a warm reception from audiences.
Hopes are high that a positive shift may be underway in this market, traditionally a difficult one for French films, with some 30 French titles of all genres already scheduled to hit theaters in 2007.
