Celebrate the French New Wave this April and May with the BFI and QueensOfVintage.com. This is your chance to win fantastic prizes such as cinema tickets, a DVD or an exclusive new book on the Nouvelle Vague.
To coincide with the 50th anniversary of the French New Wave, the BFI is celebrating the extraordinary variety of film-making which flourished in the late Fifties and Sixties showcasing works by Truffaut, Godard, Chabrol and their contemporaries.

The cinematic movement started when François Truffaut’s debut feature The 400 Blows won best direction in Cannes in 1959.

The film about a young boy drifting into delinquency on the streets of Paris became a classic and remains an influential landmark today. To mark the occasion, the film will be re-released in cinemas nationwide on 10 April 2009. For a list of venues, visit www.bfi.org.uk/newwavequeensofvintage’
