This year's French Film Festival UK will span London, Manchester, Edinburgh, Glasgow, Aberdeen and Dundee from April 20 - May 4 with a varied and unique programme of films.

The Discovery section of the line-up consists of new French films that are seeking a UK distributor. There will be screenings of Backstage, directed by Emmanuelle Bercoti, Change Of Address, directed by Emmanuel Carrere, OSS117: Nest Of Spies, from Michel Hazanavicius, and Philippe Faucon's The Betrayal.

The programme for the 15th year of the festival will also include a retrospective on Christian Vincent, with showings of his most recent films Four Stars, The Children and past work. He will also be giving a masterclass in London, Edinburgh and Glasgow.

A smaller event, Rendezvous With French Cinema, will take place in London from March 29to April 1, exhibiting a selection of films that are soon to be released in the UK.

French Film Festival UK is supported by Institut Francais, Alliance Francaise, Total, Blason de Bourgogne, Scottish Screen and Unifrance.
