Charleston's annual French Film Festival is coming to town next week (August 28-31) to convey "contemporary French cinema to College of Charleston students," but it's also good fun.
The College of Charleston event's Web site continues to elaborate:
Since it started ten years ago, the festival aims at reaching beyond strictly French cinema. The festival selections include movies from all over the Francophone world, as well as full-length features co-produced with other European countries. At least one African director is part of the program each year.
- This year's films:
There's an opening-night reception at 6:30 on Thursday, August 28. Films generally start at 7:30 at the Sottile Theatre downtown (map).
It's free with a College of Charleston ID, otherwise a $5 donation is encouraged.
