French Film Festival in Brazil hits the mark

More than 45,000 spectators attended screenings at the Varilux French Film Festival in Brazil.

Presented simultaneously in 22 Brazilian cities using a digital screening system, the ten French films showcased at the event benefited from strong media coverage reinforced by the presence of a prestigious artistic delegation at its launch in Sao Paulo and Rio de Janeiro. The delegation was composed of Catherine Deneuve, Audrey Tautou, Sandrine Bonnaire, Yahima Torres, Aure Atika, Caroline Bottaro, Michel Leclerc, Nicolas Vanier, Alain Gagnol, and the producer Philippe Martin.
Among the most popular titles at the festival were Potiche, Beautiful Lies, The Name of Love, Copacabana, and Black Venus, which together attracted over 25,000 spectators. These fine results bode well for their release in theaters in the weeks following the festival.

For the record, last year's festival held in 9 Brazilian cities drew close to 25,000 spectators.
