During these more depressing months of the year, the cultural institute Alliance Francaise Islande (a Franco-Icelandic institution meant to spread French culture and endorse cross-national communication) brightens our existence with this brilliant film festival. It brings us the best of French cinema, from old classics like Godard to new in-your-face French delicacies. Though it is fast approaching, the festival remains somewhat of a mystery. All we know is that Michel Hazanvicious will kick things off with his brand new feature l’Artiste. If the past film festivals are anything to go by, you can count on a jam-packed programme of terrific films. ATTN: film buffs should clear their calendar for this extended week of visual orgasms.
