Le French Festival
Since 2001, Le French Festival is an eagerly anticipated event on the annual Malaysian cultural agenda.
A privileged platform of expression for French arts and a momentum for cultural exchanges, the festival showcases various artistic fields encompassing cinema, performing arts, visual arts and gastronomy – each of them featuring both emerging and renowned artists.
This eclectic programing has allowed the festival to gather a wide audience of about 13,000 patrons in 2017.
The French Film Festival, the largest European film festival in Malaysia, presents each year a selection of the best contemporary releases in participating Golden Screen Cinemas halls.
Organised by Alliance Française and the Embassy of France in Malaysia, and supported by the Institut Français, the festival is, as it has been since its debut, presented by Martell. With the roots and cornerstone of the festival being the Film Festival in partnership with Golden Screen Cinemas (GSC), this year marks the first time that the Film Festival will be presented in 4 cities - Klang Valley, Penang, Kota Kinabalu and Johor Bahru.
Such a programme is possible thanks to the constant support of sponsors, partner organisations, volunteers and of the audience whose commitment to stand beside the organisers shall be underlined.
