Now in its 31st year, the French Film Festival is screening a range of movies that embody some astonishing stories. The opening night film is The Extraordinary, the new film from the directors of The Intouchables. The centrepiece screening is a restored print of Jacques Demy’s 1970 fantasy Donkey Skin, which stars screen legend Catherine Deneuve. The festival also screens three other new films starring Deneuve. Greg speaks to Artistic Director Philippe Platel to find out more about what is on offer during the festival, which screens at Palace Cinemas around Australia in March.
