Tonight at Bloor Hot Docs Cinema, the Cinéfranco Francophone International Film Festival will begin its 18th year of bringing French cinema from around the world to Toronto. It is comprised of almost 40 films from Francophone countries such as France, Belgium, Switzerland, Canada, Algeria, Morocco, Tunisia. Among it’s many accomplishments, Cinéfranco can also brag that it has kept the inevitable all-James-Franco-film festival from using its name.
We’ve sent our newest contributor, Roberto Duval, to review some films, including tonight’s opening film Tokyo Fiancée. This list will be updated throughout the week.
