MyFrenchFilmFestival sets out to conquer the Web for second time

Kicking off on January 12 is the second edition of MyFrenchFilmFestival, the online French film festival organised by Unifrance. A year after it attracted 320,000 Internet users from 171 countries for a total 40,000 viewings, the event is setting the bar even higher by increasing its length (it will last three weeks until February 1) and the number of available languages, which have gone up to 14: German, English, Arabic, Chinese, Korean, Spanish, French, Hebrew, Italian, Japanese, Lithuanian, Polish, Portuguese and Russian.

Thanks to private partnerships, the selected films will sometimes be available for viewing free of charge, for instance in Latin America (on Terra), Russia, Germany (on filmstarts.de), Italy and China (on Youku). Elsewhere, there will be paid viewings via the MyFrenchFilmFestival platform, through Dailymotion and Mubi worldwide, and on Filmin in Spain. The event will be accessible on IPTV in the United States (SnagFilms), Korea (KT) and Japan (J.Com in Japan).

The programme features debut and second films released in France since January 2010, including Cannes selectees Dear Prudence [+see also:
