FRENCH FILM LOCATIONS and FRENCH FILM FESTIVAL U.K.
Nina Cangdon has just brought to our attention a project she has recently finished with Paris based filmmaker Paco Zamora, who has previously worked on different documentaries in France, South America as well as here in the U.K. The video "FilmTripping" is very "ReelStreets" but just a little more. It invites film lovers and travellers to discover the City of Light (Paris) through seven films set in Paris, showing the locations where some of the scenes were set, from the perspective of someone who explores Paris for the first time. It moves from touristic Trocadéro to the bohemian and still undiscovered Belleville, with the objective of connecting spectators with the magic of the cinema. The video, approximately two and a half minutes long can be viewed at:

It is perhaps no coincidence that Nina finished the project to coincide with the launch of the annual French Film Festival in the U.K., full details of which can be found at:
Over 40 UK premieres are to be shown in 11 major locations across the U.K. between the 7th November and the 7th December.
