Plein les Yeux brings to De FilmHallen in Amsterdam a showcase of 32 internationally acclaimed new films produced in France and in French-speaking countries. Through a multifaceted program of premiere screenings, special presentations and meetings with guests, Plein les Yeux wants to celebrate the richness and diversity of French cinema, culture, language, art, gastronomy and “art de vivre” with a five-day long, 360° experience!
“Plein les yeux” is a French idiom that means both ‘eyeful’ and ‘blown away’. When we started to envision the kind of festival we wanted to create, we felt the need of finding a name that would embody the kaleidoscope of drama, humour, suspense and emotion of the films we love. “Plein les yeux” perfectly matched what we had in mind and it is exactly how we want you to feel after an evening or a whole five days with us!
