Women Make Waves International Film Festival
Created in 1993, the Women Make Waves International Film Festival celebrates its 30th anniversary in France, the cradle of cinema and feminism, at the Forum des images from September 19 to October 8!
30 women directors from different generations are in the spotlight, with fiction, documentary, animation and experimental films.
At a time when the international situation remains tense and Taiwan’s place is more crucial than ever in the global geopolitical balance, it’s the perfect time to present the diversity of its faces through 30 films directed by women.
Eight of them, along with festival members, will accompany their films and take part in two round-table discussions.
Festival Play It Again !
From September 13 to 26, Play It Again! will offer viewers in nearly 300 cinemas the chance to see or re-see on the big screen a selection of the year’s finest classics in newly restored versions, a retrospective of “Heroines in the Cinema”, outdoor screenings as part of the European Heritage Days, and a variety of other activities.

ALL YOU WANT TO KNOW ABOUT FILMS & SERIES
Les Feuilles mortes, Aki Kaurismäki
With Alma Pöysti, Jussi Vatanen, Janne Hyytiäinen
Two lonely people meet by chance one night in Helsinki, and each tries to find in the other their first, only and last love. But life tends to put obstacles in the path of those seeking happiness.
This will be a short review, unfortunately Covid obliges.
Go and see this magnificent film, which would have deserved the Palme d’Or, a bitter-sweet romantic comedy set amidst the war in Ukraine.
A bit of the absurd, some poetry, and the struggle to cope economically in a world that’s getting harder and harder for the most precarious.
The actors are sublime.
