The French Film Festival (FFF) will tour five cities offering some of the finest contemporary French films. The FFF meets a demand by cinema-goers for productions other than those offered in mainstream cinema complexes. The festival seeks to establish an exhilarating platform for showcasing the various facets of French contemporary cinema in India, helping Indian distributors to promote French films and celebrate the growing Indo-French ties. The six films of the Festival are subtitled in English.
About Bonjour India Festival
Riding the wave of success of the first edition of Bonjour India (2009-2010), the Embassy of France in India and the Institut Français en Inde, in association with the Alliance Française India network and the Indian Council for Cultural Relations (ICCR), are all set to unveil the second edition of the festival from January to April 2013.
A total of sixteen cities will play host to over a hundred outstanding cultural events. These will encompass all dimensions of cultural exchanges between India and France: art, literature, cinema, education, sports, architecture, fashion, photography, performing arts.
“Bonjour India is an invitation to discover and re-discover France through its whole artistic dimension. As a real cultural dialogue between French and Indian artists, Bonjour India shows the sheer friendship linking France and India”. H.E. Mr François RICHIER, Ambassador of France to India.
