UniFrance Films has launched a free iPhone app devoted to French cinema called le cinéma français. Designed in partnership with Le Film Français magazine, the app makes available news, trailers, one sheets, photo galleries, production status, box office, relevant festival berths, market acquisitions and other information about the contemporary French movie industry.
Franco-cinephiles and industry professionals alike should rejoice at the potential for all this data available instantly on their smart phones — in English, Spanish and French. The designers describe it as a reference tool, since it will also make available market studies, comprehensive lists of film industry professionals much the way the Hollywood Creative Directory has done, and a database of filmmakers in the IMDB mold.
It’s available in the iTunes store.
