Cinéfranco 2010 Preview


Cinéfranco 2010 begins this week and this year marks the it's 13th annual celebration of international Francophone cinema.

You can browse the entire festival line up online to see the films included in this years festival. I know I'm not the only one looking forward to see 3 Seasons / 3 Saisons, which is nominated for 3 Genies (Best Motion Picture, Performance by an Actress in a Leading Role & Film Editing) and is playing twice during the festival. Also very curious about Les sept jours du talion / 7 Days, a 2010 Canadian thrilled based on the novel by Patrick Senécal and starring Rémy Girard, Claude Legault, Martin Dubreuil and Fanny Mallette.

On the international front there are films from all over the world including the France/Greece/Italy co-pro Eden à l'Ouest / Eden is West from director Costa-Gavras, Luxembourg/Switzerland co-pro Réfractaire / Draft Dodger and Belgium/France co-pro Les barons / The Barons, a comedy that sounds hilarious reference getting a limited amount of 'step credits' therefore making people not in a rush to get anywhere.

Along with the features there are 2 shorts programs to enjoy. On Tuesday March 30, 2010 there will be a collection of shorts by Xavier Diskeuve and Philippe Lamensch then on Wednesday March 31, 2010 a series of shorts from the past several years including Denis Villeneuve's absolutely stunning short Next Floor.

The festival shows the majority of the films at the AMC Yonge & Dundas but also has screenings at the Revue Cinema and en boucle – Cinéma Graham Spry (Radio Canada) / Graham Spry Theatre (Radio Canada). See the screening schedule for locations.

Cinéfranco 2010 runs from March 26 - April 3, 2010 in Toronto, Ontario, Canada
