Following the success of its online festival last January, the French Film Festival will host a second installment from January 12 to February 1, 2012.

The festival will pit ten feature films and ten shorts in competition for three prizes: the Audience Prize (which will be up for a public vote), the International Press Prize (which will be decided by an international group of ten journos) and the Social Networks Prize (to be decided by 100 bloggers and social media mavens from 20 countries).  The top three features and shorts will be screened aboard Air France flights during the second half of 2012.

The entire selection of films will be available online at the French Film festival's website, and will be accessible in 14 languages, including English, French, German, Spanish, Arabic, Chinese, Japanese and Polish.  Viewers in Russia, Latin America, Italy, China and Germany will be able to watch the films for free; those in other territories can watch them for a fee.  (In the U.S., the films will be available on Dailymotion and Mubi.)
