LA Festival of Movies

Strong French presence at the inaugural Los Angeles Festival of Movies!

The Los Angeles Festival of Movies (LAFM), presented by MUBI and Mezzanine, aims to redefine Los Angeles as a premier destination for independent film. From April 4th to 7th, 2024, the festival will feature a carefully curated selection of high-profile narrative and documentary film premieres, accompanied by discussions with local artists, luminaries, and thought leaders. Each night, attendees can also enjoy lively parties at three dynamic new venues situated on the east side of Los Angeles. LAFM endeavors to serve as the focal point for the city’s vibrant film community to convene and capitalize on the growing audience for independent cinema.

Here are the French films that will be shown this year along with the film starring French talent:
