A LITTLE slice of France is coming to Ballina tomorrow, Friday, May 4, with the arrival of the French Travelling Film Festival.

Ballina Fair Cinemas and the local Alliance Française will be showing five late-release French movies from 7pm tomorrow night.

It will open with a recent French box-office hit, the zany comedy, "Nothing to Declare" (rated M), starring Benoît Poelvoorde and Dany Boon.

The film hilariously interweaves conflict, satire, a love theme and desperately dodgy dealings at the local café.

Other movies featured this year on Saturday and Sunday, May 5 and 6, are War of the Buttons (PG), an Agatha Christie adaptation called Towards Zero (MA15+), drama flick Love like Poison (MA15+) and Hands Up, another comedy and winner of the European Silver Ribbon 2011.

President of Alliance Francaise North Coast, Olivier Maxted, said this was the second year of the festival and that it was an attraction for film-goers, French speakers, Francophiles and students.

"Last year many movies were sold out, so I'd advise people to book their tickets soon," Mr Maxted said.

A festival pass to all five films is only $55.

Tickets are on sale at Ballina Fair Cinemas and online at afnorthcoast.org.au.

Ticket Pricing is adults: $13; concession: $11 (AF members/students/seniors); child 13 and under: $9. Festival pass (five Films): $55 for non-members; $50 for seniors/students; $45 AF members only.
