Join us for an evening of film and ceilidh dancing this December for the French Film Festival UK‘s Closing Gala.
The evening will begin with a showing of the 2018 film LE GRAND BAL, presented by director Laetitia Carton – an ode to the joys of dancing set in the countryside of France. Enjoy the film and then enjoy a dance yourself at a ‘Bal Folk’, or European-style Ceilidh, organised by EdinBal with music provided by Sheffield’s Emily Bowden and Simon Dumpleton – with a wide repertoire ranging from exquisite, sensual mazurkas to joyful, driving bourrées, their music transports the imagination, stirs the feet and uplifts the spirit.
The ranks of celebrated directors who started their careers by making short films is legion from Agnès Varda to François Truffaut. This programme embraces film-makers who relish working in the format and some of them will be in attendance to presents their works.
Discover an appetising avant-goût of the 26th edition of the French Film Festival with exclusive screenings in Summerhall, Edinburgh!
