Our favorite annual showcase of new Francophone cinema returns April 25-29 for our biggest and most extensive line-up yet. Join us for five days of award-winning work from some of the most exciting new names in global cinema, in partnership with UniFrance, the French Embassy in the United States, and the Premiers Plans Festival d’Angers. The week will feature dialogues with Francophone filmmakers in-person, animations, shorts, music-themed and family programming, and more. AFS members are invited to a members-only champagne opening reception on April 25.
About the event:
In 2016-2017, filmmakers and musicians from Austin & Angers, France were invited to participate in an unusual exchange program, the creation of collaborative work from their respective artistic practices. In this program, we’ll showcase a series of videos created by Austin video artists for Angers musicians, and vice versa.
The screening will be followed by a party open to all ticket holders, with live performances by Holodeck Records modular synth artists Curved Light and Dylan Cameron. Both artists were contributors to the Correspondance project.
Join us at 9:30 p.m. on April 26th!
