Viewers can also look forward to jaw-dropping thrillers like Kompromat by Jerôme Salle, starring Gilles Lellouche, and Vanishing by Denis Dercourt, with Olga Kurylenko.

The festival also presents a special selection of adaptation moviessuch as The Patience Stone and Our Lady of the Nile by Atiq Rahimi, Germinal by Claude Berry and The French Minister by Bertrand Tavernier, in partnership with the Singapore Writers Festival. 

Young audiences are not forgotten as the festival features the animated film Little Nicolas – Happy As Can Be by Amandine Fredon and Benjamin Massoubre and Belle and Sebastian by Pierre Coré. To promote French cinema and bring it closer to Singaporean homes, free screenings are organized at selected public libraries in partnership with the National Library Board. 

And finally, paying tribute to the legendary film director Jean-Luc Godard who passed away recently, a retrospective of his most influential films is shown at The Projector.
