Seven French Directors on Tap for 4th “On Set with French Cinema”

Seven French Directors on Tap for 4th "On Set with French Cinema"

On Set with French Cinema” returns for its fourth edition October through January, 2007 featuring seven prominent French directors in partnership with ten university film departments in New York, Boston, San Francisco, and Los Angeles. Sponsored by Unifrance and the French Ministry of Foreign Affairs, the program brings together France’s “leading directors” with aspiring American filmmakers. Through a series of lectures and screenings of films that have had little exposure to American audiences, directors are able to share their experiences with graduate-level film students in an “intimate setting.” Each participating director will visit three to four universities and will present several feature films both in workshops and on the occasion of special screenings organized around their visits. Public screenings in the presence of the directors will take place in New York (IFC Center, Lincoln Center, French Institute Alliance Francaise) and Boston (Harvard Film Archive) as well as in Los Angeles and San Francisco. Gaspar Noe will open the program October 10 with his feature, “I Stand Alone,” followed by Jacques Audiard in November 7 (and will receive a retrospective at Alliance Francaise), Anne Fontaine (“Nathalie“), and Nicolas Philibert (“To Be and To Have“). For more information and details of the program, please visit their website. [Brian Brooks]
