My French Film Festival.com have just released the first posters and trailer for their upcoming online film festival, which is due to take place between the 14th to 29th January 2011. Blending humour with some endearing self-deprecation, the ads poke fun at French culture, but also aim to promote the festival as an identity-altering cultural event.
In further exciting news, CineVue’s editor Daniel Green will also be a guest judge on this year’s jury, and will be giving his opinions on each of the 20 independent films in competition.
About My French Film Festival.com
Unifrance, in partnership with Allociné and with the support of the Centre National de la Cinématographie and the Ministry of Foreign Affairs, is organizing the first French online film festival open to internet users around the world. The objective is to take fully into account the evolution of cultural consumption and to reach a new audience for French cinema abroad.
My French Film Festival.com will take place from 14th to 29th January 2011. The selection comprises ten feature films (first and second films recently released in France) and ten short films, as well as a classic film. The films will be available by Video On Demand (VOD), in original version and subtitled in several languages (German, English, Arabic, Spanish, Italian, Portuguese, Russian, etc.). Internet users will then be able to vote for their favourite film. Three prizes will be awarded at the end of the festival: a prize awarded by the public, another by foreign bloggers, the third by the international press. The festival’s website will be online in late December and gives free access to the trailers and to many exclusive online interviews.
