Francophone Cinema

Directors and production from all French-speaking countries, in reverse chronological order. If you're new to Letterboxd, just know you can rearrange the list in the order you want: I suggest by average rating or by popularity.

Still being updated.

The dates next to the directors indicate the span of their lives, not of their work. They are ordered from earliest to latest death, or latest birth if they are still alive.
