The Franco-American Cultural Fund has announced the line-up for the 18th annual City of Lights, City of Angels (COLCOA) Film Festival. Held at the Directors Guild of America in Los Angeles, the festival will present 41 features, which include three International Premieres, 17 North American/U.S. Premieres, and 20 new shorts.
Opening night will be the North American premiere of "We Love You, You Bastard," directed by Oscar-winner Claude Lelouch, co-written by Valerie Perrin, and starring Johnny Hallyday, Sandrine Bonnaire, and Eddy Mitchell. The film opens in France today. The last film in competition is "Quantum Love," which has its North American premiere on Sunday April 27th. The romance was penned and directed by Lisa Azuelos, and stars Sophie Marceau, of "Braveheart" fame.
Two films will have an exclusive presentation at COLCOA, a week before their French Release: The new romance, "Not My Type," written and directed by Lucas Belvaux and starring Emilie Dequenne, and "The Last Diamond," a heist movie co-written and directed by Eric Barbier, featuring Oscar-nominee Bérénice Bejo and Yvan Attal.
