Started in 1998, is the number 1 one-stop website for everything French in London. This fully bilingual webmagazine is dedicated to promoting French culture, companies, brands, fashion and lifestyle in and around London. Its content includes articles, events, ads, a directory and free prize draws, among others.

London’s Favourite French Film was launched in June 2004 in order to showcase the richness of French cinema. Instantly successful, the event has run every year since and in 2014, Christian Clavier took part in its 10th anniversary celebrations. Every year, this event begins after the Cannes film festival with an online vote and ends in September with a gala award night. Every year, thousands of people vote for their favourite French films.

For a few years now, the awards night has been the occasion to raise funds for a charity. This year, we will be raising funds for Cancer Research UK, which “pioneers research to bring forward the day when all cancers are cured”.
