This year, French Cinema Now runs September 28-October 5, and is set to highlight the incredible diversity and beauty in contemporary Francophone film. We’re most looking forward to Marie Noelle’s Marie Curie, The Courage of Knowledge and Karim Dridi’s Chouf, a captivating crime thriller about a college student who abandons his studies after his brother is killed in the rough streets of Marseille. Individual tickets cost $12, but if you’re planning to see more than 6 of the event’s 17 films, we’d recommend purchasing a $75 festival pass.
