"Forever Young", "Crazy Loving Families", "True Heroines", "French Ghost Stories", "On the Road" and "Move is Love", not to mention “Kids Corner” and “New Horizons”: the various thematic sections of the 11th MyFrenchFilmFestival (organised by UniFrance from 15 January-15 February 2021) once again promise a highly diverse selection for the first French-language film festival in the world to be held entirely online, which has racked up a total of more than 54 million viewings in over 200 territories since it was first established. This virtual showcase should prove to be even more timely in this global context of the health crisis and its never-ending string of movie-theatre closures, with the French government having incidentally announced yesterday that national cinemas would stay shuttered until the end of January at the earliest.

This year, 33 films subtitled in ten languages will be available directly on the festival’s website (myfrenchfilmfestival.com) and on more than 60 VoD platforms (including the Apple TV app in over 90 territories, Amazon Prime Video, Google Play and MUBI). The short films in the 2021 selection will be available for free worldwide, while the features will cost €1.99 per film or €7.99 for a bundle. Interestingly, the festival is totally free of charge in Africa, Latin America, Southeast Asia, South Korea, Poland, Romania and Russia/CIS.

The jury of filmmakers who will be tasked with deciding on the winner of a prize worth €15,000 will comprise Italian documentarian Gianfranco Rosi, French-Algerian director Mounia Meddour, Canadian actress and filmmaker Monia Chokri, Colombian helmer Franco Lolli and French producer (and formerly costume designer) Rosalie Varda. Two other awards will be handed out by the audience and by the international press jury.
