From today through February 1, we're partnering with the My French Film Festival to show you ten recently released French features (first and second films) and ten French shorts. Presented by Unifrance, the festival invites you to award points to the films you like at the main site — and these points count, as six prizes will be awarded (three for features, three for shorts): the Internet Users Prize, Social Networks Prize and International Press Prize.
Outside of both competitions, we've also got a few extra presentations. The online festival was a hit around the world last year and you won't want to miss this second edition.
A few quick notes on the films, starting with the features:Rebecca Zlotowski
's Belle épine
(Dear Prudence), winner of the prestigious Prix Louis Delluc
for Best First Film, is "closer to a sobering character study than a classical youth film," finds Chris Cabin in Slant.
