Vive le cinema!

The fourth annual Chicago French Film Festival is coming July 31 – August 5, 2014. This year’s festival will offer Chicagoans an opportunity to see the best the French film industry has to offer. Mark your calendar now and plan to see new French films in a variety of genres.



  • Individual tickets: $12
  • Members of Alliance Francaise de Chicago: $10/$13
  • See 5 films with a Five Film Pass for $45 (a savings of $18)


Among the highlights of this year’s festival is the black comedy Paulette from director Jérôme Enrico, starring the late actress Bernadette Lafont as a brash and opinionated retiree who discovers a surprising way to supplement her meager pension.

Also eagerly anticipated is the biopic Violette, the latest from director Martin Provost (Seraphine). It tells the story of trailblazing feminist writer Violette Leduc and her mentor/object of desire, Simone de Beauvoir, and stars Emmanuelle Devos and Sandrine Kiberlain.

The Chicago French Film Festival is supported by the Cultural Services of the Consulate General of France in Chicago.
