    To celebrate the 70th year anniversary of French-Philippine diplomatic relations, the French Embassy has launched “PhilFrance : Feel French !” in which the French Film Festival remains one of the year’s most anticipated events. The goal of this festival is to give Filipinos the opportunity to “feel France” in various aspects of everyday life, including arts, culture and, of course, film.

    This 22nd year of the festival, critically-acclaimed French and Filipino films that have been selected at Cannes Film Festival will be included.
