The French Comedy Film Festival “Oh La La” marks its second year with a hilarious lineup of some of the best French comedy films.

The festival will run from November 14 - December 6 at the Jerusalem, Haifa, Tel Aviv, Herzliya, Holon and Sderot cinematheques, and at Zohar Hall in Kiryat Tivon.

Sponsored by the Institut Francais, the festival features over 18 contemporary comedies, some older classics and short films.

Opening the festival is Eric Lavaine’s Back to Mom’s (pictured), while the festival closer is director Laurnet Tirard’s Up for Love, starring Jean Dujardin. Both directors will be in attendance for the screenings. Other films include Lolo starring Julie Delpy and Danny Boon as well as a digitally restored version of the 1966 classic The Great Adventure.

The festival will also be paying tribute to award-winning Icelandic-French filmmaker Solveig Anspach, who died last year after a long battle with breast cancer. It will be screening three of her films including Lulu in the Nude and Queen of Montreuil.

All movies are in French with subtitles in English, Hebrew or both.
