Unifrance promotes French cinema abroad. Late June, it strikes hard with the French Film Festival in Japan. The event is based on a selection of 13 recent films put forward by Japanese distributors, which the general audience can access. An important delegation of French artists will join in the promo rounds and meet with the public: Emmanuelle Bercot, Rod Paradot, François Favrat, Laurent Lafitte, Pascale Pouzadoux, Marthe Villalonga, Isabelle Huppert, Guillaume Nicloux, Omar Sy, Roschdy Zem, Maïwenn, Nicolas Saada, Elsa Zylberstein, Marie-Castille Mention-Schaar, Lucile Hadzihalilovic, Ounie Lecomte will come this year.
Beside Tokyo, three other cities (Kyoto, Osaka and Fukuoka) will offer screenings of some of the films in the selection. This event is organised with support from Asahi Shimbun, the Institut Français in Japan, Air France and the French Embassy in Japan.
