In collaboration with the Embassy of France in Malaysia and Alliance Française de Penang, George Town Festival is pleased to present “Ciné France” French movie screenings, featuring three watch-worthy contemporary French films – “The Bears’ Famous Invasion of Sicily”, “Remi, Nobody’s Boy” and “Felicità”. From a poignant animated film to a feel-good comedy, these movies will make you fall in love with the French cinematic landscape in no time.
Drawing upon the associations between people, culture and place, and relating it to the concept of a hot pot cuisine, “Down the Melting Pot” will bring audiences into an intercultural journey through the perspectives of young contemporary artists.
Catch the screening of “Perspectives”, a disability-led film featuring virtually impaired Lim Lee Lee and Victor Tan as well as wheelchair user Stephanie Esther Fam, with soundscapes provided by Harmony Community Choir, a choir that primarily consists of young adult choral singers with autism and other learning disabilities.
G-Short is a short film festival held as part of the George Town Festival 2021 to celebrate the endless imagination and possibilities a 90-second short film can bring about. It is set to be held in George Town, Penang in July 2021.
