Mexico discovers the latest in French cinema
French films attracted 4.27 million spectators in Mexico in 2008, a rise of 5% over the previous year.
It is for this reason that Unifrance is committed to supporting the 13th French Film Tour in Mexico, which will take place from September 11 through November 26 in 51 cities throughout Mexico.
The 2009 French Film Tour in Mexico is a traveling film festival supported by the French Embassy in Mexico which showcases a selection of recent French films in Cinepolis cinemas around the country prior to their release in theaters. The festival’s line-up aims to give Mexican audiences the chance to discover French cinema’s latest offerings by presenting a selection of high quality productions from a range of genres. For the event’s first eleven years, the film selection was entirely composed of titles acquired by Cinemas Nueva Era, one of Mexico’s major distributors of French films. Nowadays, the festival has opened up to include other distributors of French films in this territory, although Cinemas Nueva Era retains the responsibility of organizing the event.
Films are presented in original version with Spanish subtitles, with each feature film screening preceded by a screening of a Mexican short film. For it’s 13th year, twelve French films are on the menu: Bellamy, La Chambre des morts (Room of Death aka Chamber of Death, Coco, Coco avant Chanel (Coco Before Chanel), Faubourg 36 (Paris 36), La Fille de Monaco (The Girl from Monaco), Il y a longtemps que je t'aime (I’ve Loved You So Long), LOL, Pour elle (Anything for Her), Ricky, Secret défense (Secrets of State), and Un conte de Noël (A Christmas Tale).
Anne Consigny and Christa Theret will travel to Mexico to accompany the presentation of their films at the event.
