This is the tenth year since the beginning of the French Cinema Festival, which is organized by the French embassy and the French Institute in Athens. The program includes 60 films, which will be screened until April 12th in Attikon and Apollo Cinemax Class cinemas from April 2nd for 10 days.

The festival will be opened by Vicki Kaya and the first film to be screened will be this year’s blockbuster Bienvenue chez les Ch’tis. The movie will be presented by the leading actress Zoe Felix.

During the festival, we will be able to see La Fille de Monaco by Ann Fonten, J’ai Touiours reve d’etre un Gangster with Anna Mouglalis, the story of the legendary Jacques Mersine, who will be enacted by Vincent Cassel – actually this is the movies, which goes under two names L’Instinct de Mort and Ennemi Public no1.

Of course, the festival will give out awards as well. At the end of the festival two awards will be given out – the one from the audience and the other from the Youth Commission, which is given by young French speaking students from the school of cinema.

Because of its two year anniversary, the festival will go outside the movie halls and will organize two parties. This is why the most important representatives of modern French electro music are invited.

Cassius (concert on April 11) and the producer who made a revolution with the electrohouse music DJ Alexkid (concert on April 3) will charge Athens with their endless energy.

Finally, we have to note that Greece is the number one market viewing French speaking films.
