Festival Opening Night Photos

Thank you to all 450 cinephiles who braved the rain to enjoy a wonderful evening of live music, decadent food, delicious drinks and sublime French cinema. 

Despite a last minute venue change due to the severe weather conditions, on Tuesday 1 March we launched the 33rd Alliance Française French Film Festival in style with our customary Opening Night Soirée hosted at Palace Cinema Central.

Prior to the screening of the devastating and dazzling Lost Illusions, guests were treated to a wonderful moment of conviviality, sipping on Nicolas Feuillatte Champagne and L'Or Espresso martinis, tasting tantalising treats including Canelés and Madeleines from Sacrebleu! and enjoying the energetic ambiance from the live band.    

The Alliance Française French Film Festival runs until Wednesday 6 April. To book tickets, visit the Festival website.
