vOilah! France Singapore Festival, the annual festival presented by the Embassy of France in Singapore, returns for a month-long celebration of partnerships between France and Singapore. Taking place from 3 November to 10 December, this year’s festival is a ‘Feel Good Edition’ and will celebrate the spirit of joy and hope. 50 programmes will celebrate the collaborations between our two countries – with a focus on culture, education, science and lifestyle – and will support, more than ever, the local cultural scene.
The 2021 edition of vOilah! France Singapore Festival will see a return to in-person events for most of the programmes, including the French Film Festival.
French Film Festival
The annual French Film Festival is back and bigger than ever with 35 films, from 11 to 28 November!
This year’s theme is crafted to complement vOilah! and the “feel good” edition. Many titles that have recently been released in France will have their premieres in Singapore, including Eiffel (by Martin Bourboulon with Romain Duris and Emma Mackey), Delicieux (by Eric Besnard with Gregory Gadebois and Isabelle Carré), and the much awaited cult movies, OSS 117 – From Africa with love (by Nicolas Bedos with Jean Dujardin and Pierre Niney) and Kaamelott (by Alexandre Astier). This 37th edition will also feature the section ‘’Music in Cinema’’ as well as a special programme dedicated to the movie director Agnès Varda, the godmother of the French New Wave.
THE NIGHTS OF THE FRENCH SERIES
vOliah! also presents ‘The Nights Of The French Series”, happening from 3 Dec to 5 Dec. French series has never been more popular internationally. They contain diverse and creative storytelling, directing, and cast. Through three “series” nights of four hours screenings at the Alliance française de Singapour, the Nights of the French Series showcase a selection of the best French productions recently released in 2020 and 2021. The event will showcase various French series, such as “The Traveller” from CinemaWorld.
“The Traveller” is a four-part detective series starring French Soccer Legend, Eric Cantona. “The Night Of The French Series” will showcase an advance screening of the first episode of the series. “The Traveller” will premiere on CinemaWorld later in December and January. More information will be posted at a later date. Stay tuned!
