Ohlalá

Ohlalà: a celebration of French film

This new festival, which will be based at the Institut Français and Cinemes Texas, aims to showcase new films in the French language.

From the earliest efforts of the Lumière brothers and the technological innovations pioneered by Méliès through the works of directors like Godard and Truffaut and iconic actors such as Jean-Paul Belmondo, Brigitte Bardot, Gérard Depardieu and Juliette Binoche, French cinema has always occupied a hallowed place in the collective imagination of film fans. The aim of the Ohlalà Festival is to provide a showcase for new productions made both in France and in French-speaking countries such as Belgium and Quebec.

The festival is set to run from 1 to 8 March at Cinemes Texas and the Institut Français, and will feature ten subtitled films, paying special attention to director Cédric Klapisch (Paris, Back to Burgundy, Chinese Puzzle). The program consists of an inaugural film (Au revoir là-haut by Albert Dupontel) and an official section in which titles such as L'effet aquàtique, Une vias ailleurs, Petit Paysan and Félicité will be taking part, all of which are recent titles by emerging directors.
