French Film Festival
Welcome to the 2019 French Film Festival, featuring films ranging from the serious to the slapstick, and grappling with issues of love, aging, gender, alienation and political extremism. Our six films include a classic by Jean Renoir, a contemporary African film, a documentary and an animated movie based on a series of popular comic books, as well as two serious French films by highly acclaimed contemporary directors Claire Denis and Laurent Cantet.
On opening night, a wine and cheese reception will be held after our first film, "Un beau soleil antérieur/Let the Sunshine In," while our Sunday matinee "L'Atelier/The Workshop" will be preceded by a pastry and coffee reception. All films will be screened on campus in the O'Hare Academic Building's Bazarsky Lecture Hall.
To avoid lines at the door, patrons are encouraged to buy a festival pass online. For questions about online ticketing, call (401) 341-2197. For general festival information, email firstname.lastname@example.org.
We look forward to seeing you March 17-28.
