By No author


Chocolate Fountain

Now an established annual event on the capital’s cultural scene, ‘London’s Favourite. French Film’ this year celebrated its 8th consecutive year. With a huge increase in its on-line vote and a Mumm champagne reception, followed by the gala awards ceremony, the evening at the Institut Français was a great success.

Double the number of people voted on-line in 2011 compared to last year and 20 times more than when the event was first launched. Patricia Connell, CEO of FranceinLondon, the No 1 web-site for all things French in London, commented: ‘We are so pleased to see this event, which we inaugurated in 2004, continue to go from strength to strength. It is vital that we go on celebrating and promoting the contribution of our world-beating cinema industry to the cultural scene in London.’

Sponsored by many leading French and British companies, such as Eurostar, Renaud, Caudalie and The Villa Book, and hosted by His Excellency the French Ambassador, Mr Bernard Emié, the awards ceremony saw this year’s prize awarded to Guillaume Canet’s latest film, ‘Little White Lies’ ( ‘Les Petits Mouchoirs’), distributed in the UK by Lionsgate. Georgia Kaufman, Director of Communications of the company, collected the award. The runners were Gainsbourg by Joann Sfar, and Of Gods and Men by Xavier Beauvois.
