January 18, 2016 | By francecanadaculture Film

The sixth edition of the world's leading online French film festival, organized by UniFrance, will take place from January 18 through February 18, 2016. Take a look at the festival poster!

So, you want to know all about it? Well, you'll just have to wait patiently until the big day. In the meantime, here are a few details we can share with you.

This year, we will announce all the details about the 2016 festival at a launch party held at the Eiffel Tower the evening before the event kicks off.

5 internationally renowned directors who will make up the Filmmakers' Jury will be present at the event, with, for the first time this year, a foreign jury president—a filmmaker whose work has attracted particular interest around the world!

Without revealing too much, this is what we can tell you about the sixth edition of the festival: there will be 26 films in the lineup, including 12 feature films, 11 short films, and 3 documentaries that have not been seen before, translated into 10 languages and accessible across the globe on around forty platforms. In Canada, the festival will be accessible non only on the website but also on the plattforms iTunes and Google Play.

And here is the poster for the 2016 festival! Following our collaboration with Michel Gondry last year, has joined forces this year with the English designers' collective and magazine, Little White Lies, who are adored by movie enthusiasts the world over. As you can see, the poster depicts some of the traditional and idealized aspects of life "à la française".
