What is French Film Festival Aotearoa?

The French Film Festival is back and is set to be bigger, bolder and more chic than ever!

Bienvenue, haere mai and welcome to the New Zealand French Film Festival. The French Film Festival has grown to become the foremost French cultural event  in New Zealand!

Every year, French Film Festival Aotearoa brings you the best and most exciting French cinema from around the French-speaking world. From Auckland to Dunedin, join us at 11 locations across New Zealand as we take you on an incredible journey through cinéma français.

Our programme has been carefully curated to profile films that tell rich stories, amplify new perspectives and entirely encapsulate the joie de vivre that can only be experienced from watching French cinema on le grand écran (the big screen).  With 21 films to choose from including comedies, thrillers and dramas - there will be something for every cinéphile!

French Film Festival Aotearoa is brought to you in part by the Alliance Française network and the Embassy of France in New Zealand. We also say merci beaucoup to the sponsors whose generous support ensures this festival can continue to showcase the best French cinema has to offer.
