NZ French Film Festival to return in March 2020

NZ French Film Festival to return in March 2020 - Save the date

We are delighted to announce that the New Zealand French Film Festival will return to the country in March 2020.

Last year, the festival was entirely redesigned by a new director, Mr Iain Macleod. The upcoming festival is set to be bigger and stronger than ever before, with three additional cities and five more venues.

This event is made possible with the collaboration of the New Zealand Alliance Française network and the Embassy of France in New Zealand.

We are pleased to have new sponsors joining us in 2020 for this unique celebration of French cinema down under.
