Varied and innovative films are still made in France every year and it comes as no surprise to find a big selection of French films on IFFR Unleashed as well, from a reflection on the work of French pre-war director Jean Epstein and the typically French 'talkies' to social dramas and experimental cinema without dialogue.The rich tradition of French cinema is still burning with life.
