Wanting to get yourself to more film festivals but haven’t got the budget to attend, then here is a festival that will come to you instead.
From the birthplace of film, MyFrenchFilmFestival.com is an innovative concept aiming to throw the spotlight on new generation French filmmakers, allowing web users across the globe to share their enthusiasm for French cinema. Now in its eighth year, the festival returns launching live on the 19th of January for the month to the 19th of February, with new films to offer, new partner platforms and in movie theatres in a number of countries.
Organised in six thematic sections, mixing short films and feature films, MyFrenchFilmFestival offers “Internet festivalgoers” the chance to discover the many aspects and talents of French and Francophone cinema.

HIT THE ROAD! Motorways, filling stations, holiday clubs… and initiatory quests!
TEEN STORIES – The age of adolescence, when anything goes!
FRENCH AND FURIOUS – Disturbing situations filled with more or less unsavoury characters…

NEW HORIZONS – A new section! MyFrenchFilmFestival expands with a new French film section entitled NEW HORIZONS (films out of competition) which spotlights new screenwriting talents and amplified film experiences.
Internet users all over the world are invited to vote on the festival platform for their favourite short film and feature film, which will receive the Lacoste Audience Award and be shown for six months on board Air France flights.
