Hollywood's French Film Festival Reveals Some of Its Titles; 'The Intouchables' Duo's Latest to Open Shorts Lineup

A week before announcing the full line up of films in competition at the COL•COA (City of Lights, City of Angels) awards, Hollywood’s annual French film festival has revealed some of the titles slated to play during the 17th edition.

Following their win of the festival’s 2012 audience award, “The Intouchables” directing duo Olivier Nakache and Eric Toledano will return to Hollywood to kick off the short films competition with their new short “Clean,” starring Laurent Lafitte. Other additions to the lineup include the North American premiere of “The Sons of Wind,” Bruno Le Blanc’s documentary about the ‘spiritual sons’ of guitarist Django Reinhardt; “The Invisibles,” winner of this year’s Best Documentary César award, that traces the evolution of French society from the post-war to the present via the perspective of homosexuals; and “Becoming Traviata,” an in depth look at the modern staging of Verdi’s famous opera.

The festival runs April 15-22 in the Directors Guild of America complex in Hollywood. Below, find the full shorts lineup.
