Ticket Information:

  • Free Admission

As a special addition to its advertised 2018 60th Anniversary Season programme, the Canterbury Film Society and Alliance Francaise present a screening of "Haute Cuisine" as part of FESTA 2018: A public festival of architecture, design and food in Christchurch.

Entry by koha/donation.

Haute Cuisine (2012) is a 'dramedy' directed by Christian Vincent. It’s based on the true story of Danièle Mazet-Delpeuch and her appointment as private chef to the French President François Mitterrand.

"Breezy, brisk, vigorous. These aren't words one would automatically associate with a foodie film, but they're meant as praise. Though a woman of Hortense's cool elegance would never say it, she has a heck of a ride as Mitterand's chef, and it's fun to be along for it." - Roger Ebert

PG13, 95 minutes.

For newcomers to the Canterbury Film Society, the society offers weekly screenings of top-quality arthouse, international, local, rare and classic feature films, documentaries and more. Full membership provides access to all screenings through an eight-month season in the Philip Carter Family Auditorium at the Christchurch Art Gallery Te Puna o Waiwhetu, for just over $4 per film!

CFS's regular Monday night screenings provide a friendly, welcoming atmosphere with drinks and snacks for purchase, opportunities to socialise, guest introductions, and a carefully curated programme of films that is sure to captivate, inform and inspire film buffs as well as those searching for alternatives to mainstream cinema.
