The French Film Festival's fff@home has announced an online programme to run from March 12 to 27.

The selection includes titles from last year's Covid-hit edition, including Jean-Paul Salomé’s César-nominated quirky crime caper, Mama Weed, starring Isabelle Huppert as a French-Arabic police translator.

Other films screening, include the multi-César nominated Love Affair(s), directed by Emmanuel Mouret and Lucas Belvaux's Home Front, which features Gérard Depardieu.

Also included is Régis Roinsard’s whodunnit The Translators, Anne Fontaine's police thriller Night Shift and Justine Triet's romantic comedy In Bed With Victoria.

The films are available to watch for 48 hours across three weekends.

Richard Mowe, director and co-founder of the Festival, said: “We wanted to make sure that audiences did not miss out on some of the most anticipated films of the Festival due to the Covid disruption … and now they’re available to view online as part of the extended Festival. Bon film!”

Films cost £8 each or £40 for the full festival bundle.

Tickets are on sale now from the official site
