About the event

One Film One Federation (OFOF), in collaboration with Telescope Film, presents French Cinémathèque – a celebration of Francophone cinema offering a curated selection of monthly films from January – December, 2024. AF Chapter members worldwide can enjoy the monthly selection on specified streaming platforms followed by a free hosted discussion in English with industry experts.

The monthly discussion will be lead by Aude Hebert. Aude has had a distinguished career in the promotion of French cinema, including positions with the Forum des Images, the Cannes Directors’ Fortnight, the Paris Cinema International Film Festival, Unifrance, and Le Public Système Cinéma.  She has just taken a new position as the Head of Film and TV for the Villa Albertine in Los Angeles.

Telescope Film, the only site in the US exclusively for international film and TV, now offers a dedicated page for France. Looking for a particular French film or show? Search our comprehensive database to find out if it’s streaming in the US and where. Not sure what to watch (as long as it’s French!)? See what’s new and what’s popular from France, or browse our curated content – there’s a new themed collection every month. From the classics of the French New Wave to the latest series, the French page on Telescope is a home for fans of French film and TV.

May: Un prophète (2009) Director: Jacques Audiard Starring: Tahar Rahim, Niels Arestrup, Adel Bencherif

Sentenced to six years in a French prison, Malik El Djebena is alone in the world and can neither read nor write. To get by, he aligns himself with a powerful Corsican mob boss, steadily working his way up through the ranks, until his success brings him into conflict with his mentor.

Discussions will take place on the fourth Monday of each month. Participants are encouraged to watch the film via streaming before attending the discussion.

This event will be on Zoom and is free for all Alliance Française members, AATF members, invited guests of the presenter and non-members. Click here to register.
