CITI-RUSTAN'S FRENCH FILM FESTIVAL



The 17th edition of the French Film Festival, presented by the Embassy of France to the Philippines and the Alliance Française de Manille, as part of the French cultural program, Francophil starts its run from June 8 to June 17, 2012 at the Shangri-la Mall Cineplex.

The festival opens with no less than the 2012 Academy award-winning movie "The Artist", a black-and-white silent film that follows the life of George Valentin - a Hollywood silent film star.

The UP Film Institute and the Cultural Center of the Philippines will provide an opportunity for Olivier Assayas, one of France’s most respected directors, to share his passion for cinema by providing a venue for him to interact with Filipino film directors and students upon his arrival in Manila.

Assayas will hold a Master Class at the UP Film Institute on June 7, Thursday at 2PM, where the director is expected to share his passion for cinema by providing a venue where he can interact with Filipino film directors and students here.

Seventeen of France’s most-loved film feats also await cinephiles this year, which includes a seven-film retrospect on director-extraordinaire Olivier Assayas, one of the first European directors to pay attention to Asian films; and an eight-film treat from L’Institut Francais.







The films are free of charge on a first come, first served basis.
For more information, please call 633-7851 loc. 113.
