For families, this is the most beautiful and attractive of the Sicilian bear invasions.
John Mullins, president of the Alliance Frances de Cork, said: “During the lockdown, French language movies and TV shows became more popular.
“French series like Call My Agent introduced spectators to amazing French actors in Ireland and around the world.
I hope this new appreciation for French productions will encourage viewers to attend this year’s Cork French Film Festival.
“It’s amazing to be able to go back to the movies, and I hope moviegoers who can’t do it in person will join some of our online shows.”
