The fifth edition of My French Film Festival 2015 will be the world's first online French film festival. It will be specially available for free viewing in India on all connected devices on the web, mobiles and tablets potentially reaching out to over 300 million internet users in the world’s second largest internet market.
Organised by UniFrance Films, this festival will be available to viewers in India from January 16 to February 16. Indian users can also download the specialised app Halfticket TV from the Google Play stores for Android devices. Similarly, Apple device users can also get the app via iTunes from the date of the festival.
The festival is an innovative concept, bringing the best of French cinema to cinema enthusiasts, filmmakers and cinema lovers. The goal is to showcase the young generation of French filmmakers and enable internet users to share their love of French cinema. All the films selected will be available with a free access online. The selection includes ten French feature films and ten French shorts.
Isabelle Giordano, general director, UniFrance, said, “Between the first and fourth editions of the festival we have seen a fair amount of traffic on from Indian users accessing the festivals site, underlining the interest in French films. This time, as we look forward to bringing another round of the best films from new French directors, we wanted to make the festival accessible to internet users across India, and hence tied up with HalfTicket.tv to stream the festival.”
Jagdish Rajpurohit, founder, HalfTicket.tv, said, “The new-age Indian cinema lover wants to experience movies from across the globe. This viewer would love to see new content from French cinema but so far the movies never came to India. With our tie-up to get the festival to India, we aim to begin offering them international movies at their convenience”.
