Events roundup

For the 2016 edition, features produced by France represent more than half of the Competition titles in the Official Selection, 66% of the films selected for Directors' Fortnight and 85% of the films in Competition in Critics' Week.

For the first time since the festival's inception, France will take pride of place at the Annecy International Animation Film Festival. This year's event will feature 14 programs of French animated short films put together by prominent international personalities with the aim of presenting a wide and varied panorama of current French film production. UniFrance will be on hand to host a series of events held as a central part of the festival.

With fifteen French shorts selected at the Cannes Film Festival, including three titles in competition, French short film production is set to have a potent presence this year. Three titles are included in the Official Competition, three at the Directors' Fortnight, six at Critics' Week, and three in the Cinéfondation selection.


The 24th French Film Festival in Japan will take place from June 24 through 27, 2016, at the Yurakucho Asahi Hall and the TOHO Cinemas Nichigeki in Tokyo. A selection of twelve films will be presented in the presence of a delegation of French artists. For further information, please contact us
