1 Week Of French Cinema In LA (Angelinos See "Zarafa" & "Intouchables" Early)

Billed as the largest festival in Hollywood dedicated to foreign film, the City of Lights, City of Angels (COL•COA) Festival will be bringing the best in contemporary French cinema from Paris to Los Angeles in what will be its 16th year.

Of note, 2 films you should be familiar with by now, given how much coverage they’ve received here on S&A, will screen: the award-winning, box office record-setting Intouchables as well as the animated feature Zarafa – a beautiful hand-drawn work of animation about a 10-year-old named Maki and the orphaned giraffe, Zarafa, who go on an epic adventure from the Sudan, where Maki escapes from slave traders, to Alexandria, Marseille and Paris.

Of course both, and every film to be screened at COLCOA, are in French with English subtitles.

Screenings take place at the Directors Guild of America on Sunset from April 16th through the 23rd.

Individual tickets are $10 with special deals for seniors, students, the disabled and assorted guilds and film clubs.

Passes are also available and there are a number of free screenings.

Check out the COL•COA website for the full lineup and more information.
