Norwich Film Festival

Norwich has been twinned with Rouen for over 60 years and NFF was created just one year before TIE and takes place almost on the same dates as us. A lot of coincidences for a partnership that is developing year after year. The NFF logo will be displayed on the joint films. Directors who register for both festivals receive a 20% discount on registration

France Cartoons

This association, run by Pierre Balouhey, promotes and encourages, through humour, friendship between people. As this is also the aim of This is England, we have been working together for three years now, presenting an exhibition of press cartoons on loan from France Cartoons at the same time as the festival, providing a complementary vision to the films.



The International festival of caricature

This cartoon show is held every year in Saint Just-Le-Martel and Steve Bell, cartoonist for the Guardian and friend of the festival, is often invited to both Saint Just and Rouen for joint exhibitions, such as the latest Bell Brochette.



British week in Bruz

The British Week at the Grand Logis has been organised by the team of the cultural centre of the town of Bruz, on the outskirts of Rennes, for the past 12 years. It offers, in addition to a dozen or so new feature films, activities around British cinema and culture. The closing night is always dedicated to short films, with a free screening after the awards ceremony of the feature film competition. Last year, a selection of TIE shorts was presented.

Cinéma Zola in Villeurbanne

1996 saw the launch of the first Ciné o'Clock, organised by the Villeurbanne English Club. A not-to-be-missed event in the urban area for lovers of Irish and British culture!
This year, the Zola cinema is joining forces with This is England, offering a selection of little gems from across the Channel to be discovered at last, in Villeurbanne!
