More than two dozen recent French short and feature films are now available to watch on access>CINEMA’s MyCinema platform as part of this year’s MyFrenchFilmFestival, which runs from today, January 19th, until February 19th.

This year’s film is the 14th edition of the first worldwide online festival entirely dedicated to Francophone films. A groundbreaking initiative, this festival aims to share the pleasure of cinema with as many people as possible, especially those with limited access to movie theatres.

This year’s selection includes a range of exclusive French films, many of which have not previously been available in Ireland.

An eclectic mix of ten feature films are available to rent throughout the festival. The lineup includes delightful comedies such as The Green Perfume and Super Drunk, powerful dramas such as Junkyard Dog and The Beast in the Jungle, and a selection of documentaries including Polaris and the animated No Dogs or Italians Allowed.

This year’s selection also includes a 1988 classic from the late, great filmmaker Agnes Varda – Jane B. for Agnes V.. The film is a ‘cinema-portrait’ of Jane Birkin, the British singer/actress who passed away in 2023.

All feature films are available to rent at a price of €4.99 per film.

The selection of shorts includes a variety of animated and live action films, as well as family-friendly titles such as Two Friends and Atomic Chicken. All the shorts are available to watch free of charge.

Festivalgoers around the world can vote for their favourite films on the website, with the Audience Awards for feature film and short film announced after the festival.
