Win an overnight break and tickets to the IFI French Film Festival 2022

The Shelbourne

The Irish Times has teamed up with the IFI French Film Festival to offer one lucky reader the chance to win a pair of tickets to Céline Devaux’s Everybody Loves Jeanne at the IFI and an overnight stay in The Brooks Hotel, Dublin on Friday, November 25th.

Following a professional, and much publicised, embarrassment involving a malfunctioning and hugely expensive ocean cleaning device, entrepreneur Jeanne (Blanche Gardin) finds herself facing a mountain of unpayable debt in Everybody Love Jeanne. Struggling to suppress the taunts of her inner voice, which we are privy to in the animated form of a goading stick figure, Jeanne decamps to Lisbon to sell the family home where she and her brother experienced a fractious relationship with their late mother. At the airport, she runs into Jean (Laurent Lafitte), a whimsical and somewhat intrusive former schoolmate. What will her trolling inner voice make of their flirtations?

The 23rd IFI French Film Festival runs at the IFI in Temple Bar and online on IFI@Home from November 16th – 27th with 27 features in total. Find out more about the French Film Festival here.

The prize includes a deluxe room with breakfast at Brooks Hotel. Official accommodation partner of the IFI French Film Festival, Brooks Hotel is a boutique four-star hotel located on Drury Street, just a two-minute walk from Grafton Street and St. Stephen’s Green. For more information, see
