Iceland’s longest-running film festival, the French Film Festival, kicks off tomorrow in Bíó Paradís. Its two-week program features a variety of movies and events for all ages, including Q&A sessions, crepes, and fencing.

This year marks the festival’s 24th edition, which runs from January 19-28. The films screened span a variety of genres, including romance, action, and family-friendly animation.

The festival also includes various events in addition to the screenings, including a chat with Disco Boy director Giacomo Abbruzzese tomorrow at noon. This Sunday, a screening of the animation The Black Pharaoh, The Savage and the Princess (screened in French with Icelandic subtitles), will include crepes after the screening. A screening of The Three Musketeers – Part 1: D’Artagnan this Sunday evening will be preceded by a fencing show to get viewers warmed up for the action.

Further screening times can be seen on the festival’s Facebook page.
