The Alliance Francaise, in partnership with STUDIOCANAL and Palace Cinemas, is proud to present the Alliance Francaise Classic Film Festival.

After the 2015 success of Une Retrospective dedicated to Deneuve in Sydney, this year the Festival will screen nationally — five films in five cities around Australia: Sydney, Melbourne, Canberra, Brisbane and Perth.

A complement to the renowned Alliance Francaise French Film Festival, the Alliance Francaise Classic Film Festival aims to annually rediscover classic masterpieces of French cinema, highlighting a talent, actor or director who has made an indelible contribution to France’s celebrated film industry.

Les Blondes will be the theme of this second edition, celebrating five emblematic actresses in iconic French films from 1952 to 1975: Brigitte Bardot, Catherine Deneuve, Jean Seberg, Romy Schneider and Simone Signoret.

Decorated figures of French cinema with a certain “je ne sais quoi”, these iconic blondes collectively garnered a myriad of Cesars, Oscars and other awards for their performances and films. Those five actresses represent a revered symbol of French culture whose talent and presence has reverberated far beyond the confines of cinema.

So don’t miss out on this new festival in Brisbane, celebrating five iconic French actresses!
