A message from the Ambassador of France to Ireland

H.E. Vincent Guérend

I am delighted to support the Cork French Film Festival. 2024 will be the 35th edition of the festival, bringing the best of French and Francophone cinema to Cork every year.
The Cork French Film Festival plays a significant role in promoting the cultural links between our two countries. At the moment, sport is playing a huge role in Franco-Irish relations, with the Rugby World Cup 2023 having taken place in France and the Olympic and Paralympic games taking place in Paris in 2024. Indeed, the festival is highlighting 3 films on sport in particular this year.
I wish to congratulate Josselin Le Gall, Honorary Consul of France in Cork, and Valérie David McGonnell, President of Alliance Française de Cork, and the whole team for their work on the Cork French Film Festival.


Enjoy the festival!

Vive le cinéma! Vive l’amitié franco-irlandaise!

H.E. Vincent Guérend, Ambassador of France to Ireland
