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 film:
The entire family is invited to this AFS “Sunday School” screening of France’s 2016 Oscar-nominated animated feature, about a magical red turtle who comes into contact with a shipwrecked sailor. The film features stunning images and sound design, and is dialogue-free (no subtitles necessary).
Join us on April 29th for the New French Cinema Week: THE RED TURTLE!
