Your chance to see two of the films that made S&A's list of film highlights for the year 2012 (read it HERE) - Hatian filmmaker Djinn Carrénard's guerrilla triptych Donoma, and Senegalese director Moussa Toure's La Pirogue. (which was recently acquired for distribution by ArtMattan Productions.

The 3rd annual 2013 My French Film Festival online event lets audiences almost all over the world discover new French cinema via the web. 

From January 17 to February 17, 2013, film enthusiasts aroun the globe will be able to access all the films in the festival's 3rd edition lineup, online, for a fee, of course.

Ten features and ten shorts are in competition, available in 12 languages, including English, French, German, Italian, Japanese, Polish, Portuguese, Russian, Spanish, and Turkish. There will also be a version for Chinese audiences.

Audiences are invited to rate and comment on all the films, with those receiving the top scores awarded and shown aboard all Air France flights.

While you have to pay a fee to watch the films (like almost every other film festival), audiences can watch, free-of-charge, exclusive interviews with the directors and actors.

What it costs to watch:

- Rental of a feature film: 1.99€ (or about $2.63)

- Rental of a short: 0.99€ (about $1.31)

- Or you could buy the Feature Pack, which gives you access to all the features: 11.99€ (about $15.85)

- Shorts Pack: 5.99€ for one access to the shorts (about $7.92)

- There's also the Full Access Pack, which gives you access to the entire lineup of both shorts and features: 15.99€ (about $21.13)

Worth noting is that, for this third edition, all of the festival's films will be available FREE OF CHARGE in China, Poland, Russia and Turkey, and as well as in Latin America, thanks to the contribution of private partners. So if you live in any of those locations, congrats! You get to see all the films for free! The rest of the world, well, you pay as listed above.

You can watch all the films at MyFrenchFilmFestival.com, or via several of its partners like iTunes, Vudu, Daily Motion, EuroCinema, Orange and many others.
