Talented women directors, strong female leads... we're loving the line-up at this year's Alliance Francaise French Film Festival.
Now in its 11th year, the festival is underway and runs until mid-April around the country. There are stories about women breaking free from circumstance and family pressure, or fighting the pharmaceutical industry to prevent unnecessary deaths. There's a rom-com that completely subverts the genre. There are films that reinforce the strength of feminine perspectives in French cinema.
The good folk behind this annual cinematic treat have compiled a round-up of the festival's notable films by women - it's a great starting point for exploring the festival programme.
