Coming soon: Three film festivals I’d like to talk about.
March and April will definitely be cinema’s months.
From the 7th to the 30th march, there is this very good festival called the “New York International Children’s Film Festival”. They present movies and cartoons for children but also for adults. My favorite this year is Jack and the Cuckoo Clock Heart by Mathias Malzieu and Stephane Berla. It is a French movie which has been adapted from a really good book written by M. Malzieu. The story is about a little boy who has a Clock instead of his Heart. This movie is just a huge travel between the Europe, the soundtrack is amazing and the story is like a dream.
From the 4th to the 8th April, there is the Focus on French Cinema in Greenwich, CT and Manhattan. As the name indicates, this Festival presents only French movies. My favorite one for this festival is certainly “Me, Myself and Mum” (Guillaume et les garcons a table) which I already talked about in one of my last article. He won the Cesar of the Best Film, Best First Film, Best Actor, Best Adaptation,and Best Editing. It’s the story of an actor called Guillaume Gallienne who had a pretty difficult childhood as all his family and friends were thinking he was gay while he was not.
From the 16th to the 24th April, the TriBeCa Film Festival will take place in Manhattan. The festival was founded in 2002 by Jane Rosenthal and Robert de Niro, it is a Festival of Independent Movies. It rewards the best narrative movies, the best documentaries, the best short movies… The program will feature people like Kevin Spacey, Michael Douglas, Alec Baldwin and a lot of others. Personally, I can’t wait to see the documentary “Dior and I” a documentary about the history of the house of the designer Christian Dior. But also Human Capital, a movie by Paolo Virzi starring Valeria Bruni Tedeschi. Check the TriBeCa film guide here
I already booked my tickets for these three festivals. It’s crazy how NY can offer so many interested thing every days !
Have you ever heard about these movies ? Do you want to see them ?
