French participation at IFFI

MUMBAI: More than 15 long features and co-productions, representing the diversity of French cinema, will be showcased at the IFFI this year.

“Among the countries where cinema has played a role in cultural life, France and India occupy indeed a very special place. From the very inception of this new form of art, more than a century ago, both countries felt a strong inclination for what was to be commonly known as the Seventh art,” says Jérôme Bonnafont, Ambassador of France in India.



Among them, the French Oscar entry ‘‘Orchestra Seats” (“Fauteuils d‘orchestre”), the box-office hit “TAXI 4” and three of the most awaited films of this year : “99 francs” (a film adaptation of a best-seller book), “The second wind” (a remake of one of finest film in French cinema history) and the mindblowing “Intimate ennemy” (a first of its kind look at the Algerian struggle for independence), whose directors will do us the honour to participate to IFFI and interact with the Indian audience and media during this celebration of cinema.



The 6 films “Living together” collection prepared by the French Ministry of Foreign Affairs are modern-day fables about French society and its divides which convey the vital need to learn how to get to know and understand each other, while the Film heritage section, co-organised by the Thomson Foundation, will be the occasion to see among the masterpieces of the history of World Cinema.



Veteran and respected filmaker and indophile Alain Corneau will be leading the French delegation comprising Florent-Emilio Siri, Jan Kounen, and talented young actress Fanny Valette as well as the Thomson Foundation team, the European Club of Producers, Samira Zaibat of the International critic‘s week in Cannes, and Fabien Westerhoff participating in the NFDC organised Film Bazaar section.

Irada....Docu-thriller?

The title Irada comes across as B-grade 1970s and it has little relevance to the theme of the film, which is honourable. The film is about an ecological problem, almost a disaster. The issue dealt with here, though, is not as infamous or as well known as the Bhopal gas tragedy.
