India welcomes the 5th Rendez-Vous with French Cinema

For the second year running, the Rendez-Vous with French Cinema in India has been incorporated into the program of the Mumbai International Film Festival.

This inititiative, which was launched by uniFrance Films five years ago as an independent event, has been converted into a Focus sidebar showcasing ten French films presented as part of the Film Festival organized by the Mumbai Academy of Moving Images (MAMI). The following ten films are presented this year: Our Children (Joachim Lafosse), Farewell My Queen (Benoit Jacquot), Something in the Air (Olivier Assayas), Rust & Bone (Jacques Audiard), The Dandelions (Carine Tardieu), Holy Motors (Leos Carax), Laurence Anyways (Xavier Dolan), Not Dead (Gustave Kervern and Benoît Delepine), Twice Upon a Time (Jean-Paul Rouve), and Another Woman's Life (Sylvie Testud).

A delegation of around ten French personalities are expected to travel to India for this 14th Festival, which runs until October 25: Jean-Paul Rouve (Twice Upon a Time), Carine Tardieu and her producer Fabrice Goldstein (The Dandelions), Soko(Augustine), Michel Spinosa (Renoir), Noëlle Mesny Deschamps (Dreamers), as well as Christian Jeune (from the Cannes Festival Film Office) and the film editor Pascale Chavance, who are members of the jury.

A total of 38 French films will be screened at this year's festival, including Augustine by Alice Winocour, which is competing for the main competition's $100,000 prize.
