Voilah! French Festival 2017

Saturday, 8 April 2017 – Sunday, 21 May 2017
Various locations around Singapore

Bonjour! The annual Voilah! French Festival Singapore returns this year with a bespoke showcase of more than 40 events around Singapore over six weeks.
Organised by the Embassy of France and Institut Français Singapour in collaboration with French and Singaporean partners, it celebrates the best of French creativity and innovation 

in culture, science and gastronomy in Singapore. This year, two exciting film programmes are part of the programme.


Voilah! 2017 is bringing 4 amazing movies that were recently awarded the Cannes Film Festival’s highest honour – the “Palme d’Or” to festival goers. To be held at both The Projector and Alliance Francaise, film buffs will be pleased to note that crowd favourites such as Blue is the Warmest Color will be brought to the screens of Singapore once more, together with the likes of The Class, which was the first French film to win the coveted award since 1987. Others also includ
Love, a deeply moving film that revolves around an octogenarian couple whose bond is severely tested by a stroke, and Dheepan, a gripping depiction of the immigrant experience from Sri Lanka to France. Share a laugh, cry your heart out and simply enjoy the best of French cinema right here in the comfort of our little red dot.
