The 2018 COLCOA French Film Festival was again a huge success.

The Festival, held at the Directors Guild of America in West Hollywood was offering a wide range of movies, TV Shows, and documentaries.

My favorite new movie was the latest Nakache and Toledano movie Le sens de la fete I don’t remember the last time I laughed that much … maybe it was for another Nakache and Toledano movie Intouchable . No wonder they won the LAFCA Critics Special Prize.

Dany Boon was there again with his new movie La Chtite Famille. Back to his Chtite roots, he makes a  movie that points out how one can forget about his family and his roots, in order to succeed in the Parisian high society. It is a very funny and sensitive movie.  The homage to his friend Johnny Hallyday at the end is very moving.

The Festival allows French and non-French people to discover French cinema in all its glory. What a great festival with free screenings, opportunity to see classic French movies and new ones, an occasion to meet and greet with actors, directors and producers and an occasion to meet people from different horizon during the pre-screening events. Thank you COLCOA for offering a week of French Film Premieres in Hollywood.
