Focus on French Cinema


Area Francophiles don’t need to hop on a plane (or even head into the city) to view new, critically acclaimed French films. The annual Focus on French Cinema event brings cutting edge international films right to them, presented by the Alliance Française of Greenwich. This year the film festival, held March 27th through April 2nd, showcased a diverse selection of the best premiere French-language films from around the world. L’escale restaurant hosted a cocktail party for the opening, followed by the screening of It’s Only the End Of the World (Juste la fin de monde), a celebrated and award-winning film with a huge following in France and Québec. Vive la France!
