NEW PARTNERSHIP WITH THE FRENCH FILM FESTIVAL 2018

Dans le Noir? Rydges Auckland is proud to announce his partnership with the Alliance Française French Film Festival for the 12th edition.

The Alliance Française French Film Festival has firmly established itself as the largest French cultural event on New Zealand’s national cultural calendar.

2018 will present a diverse showcase of the best contemporary French-language cinema in New Zealand. The selection will include successful French titles that have premiered at prestigious international film festivals including Cannes and Toronto.

Launching in Auckland on March 1st, the 2018 Festival will open with the effervescent C’est la vie! (Le Sens de la fête) by Olivier Nakache and Éric Tolédano (The Intouchables, 2010). An entertaining look at a disastrous day in the life of a wedding planner, the lead role was written for and stars the legendary Jean-Pierre Bacri. Celebrating rich French talent and a diverse program, the Festival will close with Mrs. Hyde (Madame Hyde) by Serge Bozon, a fantastic and surreal reinterpretation of Robert L. Stevenson’s literary classic The Strange Case of Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde.

Stay tuned!

==> We will come back in February with lots of surprises and the full 2018 program will be available online from Thursday 8 February.
