Cinefrance Programme and Guests Announced
18 Nov 2003 :
An Andre Techine retrospective, new work from Bertrand Blier, Jacques Doillion and Patrice Chereau plus debuts from Xavier Giannoli, Francis Palluau and Arnaud and Jean-Marie Larrieu.

The Festival of French Film – Nov. 27th – Dec. 7th 2003

The Irish Film Institute is delighted to announce the final programme for CineFrance – the Festival of French Film 2003. The event takes place at the IFI in Temple Bar, Dublin from November 27th – December 7th. Organised by the Irish Film Institute in collaboration with the French Embassy in Dublin, CinéFrance is an annual celebration of French cinema. The festival aims to showcase the best of contemporary French cinema. We are delighted that there are 30 Irish premieres – 13 of which are by first time directors.

Among the striking debut features are Xavier Giannoli’s Eager Bodies, Francis Palluau’s Welcome to the Rozes (Bienvenue chez les Rozes) and Arnaud and Jean-Marie Larrieu’s A Man, A Real Man. Two films in particular have received great acclaim – Zabou Breitman’s Beautiful Memories won three Cesars, while Alain Guiraudie’s No Rest for the Brave has been championed by Jean Luc Godard and Agnes Varda.

The programme also includes new work from more established directors Bertrand Blier (Les Cotelettes), Jacques Doillion (Raja) and Patrice Chereau (Son Frere), while also providing Irish audiences to see the new film from the controversial Bruno Dumont (twentynine palms) and we are delighted that Bruno Dumont will attend the screening.

This year’s festival retrospective focuses on the work of André Téchiné. His 25-year, 13-film career spans an extraordinary cinematic range. To coincide with the screening of his most recent film Les Egares – we are delighted to present a selection of his most recent work .

Popular French cinema is well represented with three box-office successes; Juliette Binoche stars with Jean Reno in the comedy Jet Lag, Coline Serreau’s follow up to Trois homes et un couffin – 18 Years After with Andre Dussollier, and Thierry Binistri’s The Over-Eater, which stars Eric Cantona in his first leading role. The screening of this film will be preceded by a short film directed by Eric Cantona who will be present to introduce his work.
