Famed for her prowess on both sides of the camera, Emmanuelle Bercot won the Best Actress Award at the 2015 Cannes Film Festival for her moving performance in Mon roi. Bercot’s directorial work is showcased at this year’s French Film Festival by 150 Milligrams and Standing Tall.

150 Milligrams follows a courageous woman who embarks upon a hazardous path as she attempts to expose the dangers of a profitable new medication, whilst Standing Tall stars the legendary Catherine Deneuve as a juvenile judge who tries to rehabilitate a volatile young delinquent.
