French Festival at Dendy

 

French cinema is often what French people are the most proud of (besides revolution and cheese). Hollywood may be the undisputed king of global film industries, but modern cinema owes its entire existence to the French. From the first time the Lumière brothers dazzled crowds with their Cinématographe at L’Eden, the world’s first cinema, to the founding of the Cannes Film Festival, France has pushed the envelope in what cinema is and what it will be.

Celebrating Bastille Day, and running July 1-28, the same month as the 2021 Festival de Cannes, Dendy Portside has collated four iconic titles, each either hugely influential in their own right, modern classics exemplifying the titanic talents of France’s celebrated film industry, or just possessing a certain je ne sais quoi. Between romance and drama, comedy and adventure, experience these films as they were meant to be on the big screen and rediscover the artistic cinematography, creative directing, and the classic splendour of these truly essential masterpieces of French cinema.
