French Film Festival

French Film Festival

We are excited to present the 2024 edition of Salve Regina University's French Film Festival. From our classic film "La Reine Margot" (1994) to our contemporary films, this year we explore the boundaries of human nature and societal norms. Most of our films are focused on transgressions - from the St. Bartholomew's Day Massacre during France's wars of religion to forbidden love in the 18th century to two crime comedies, set respectively in the 1930s and the present day.

All films will be screened on campus in the O'Hare Academic Building's Bazarsky Lecture Hall.

On opening night, a wine and cheese reception with live music will be held after our first film, "Portrait of a Lady on Fire," while our Sunday matinee, "Queen Margot," will be preceded by a pastry-and-coffee reception.

To avoid lines at the door, patrons are encouraged to buy a festival pass online. Tickets for individual screenings will be available at the door (cash or check only).
