18th French Film Festival in Manila


The film festival season begins this month (we’re shaking with excitement!) and every year it kicks off with the French Film Festival. Now on its 18th run, the festival opens to the public today until Sunday (June 7 – June 9, 2013) at the Greenbelt 3 Cinemas in Makati City.

Opening this year’s festival is “Le Prénom” (“What’s in a Name?”), a film chronicling a soon-to-be father’s revelation of his future son’s name which humorously brings his family into “utter chaos.” Four other French films will be screened to Filipino viewers free of charge. The line-up includes “Alceste à bicyclette” (“Cycling with Moliere”), “De Rouille et d’os” (“Rust and Bone”), “Du Vent dans mes mollets” (“The Dandelions”), and “Camille redouble” (“Camille Rewinds”).

It is presented by the Embassy of France to the Philippines, the Alliance française de Manille and Institut Français, under the French cultural program, FrancoPhil.
