French Film Festival in Newport, RI

18 Mar

Sunday night kicked off the 8th annual French Film Festival sponsored by Salve Regina University, L’ Alliance Francaise de Newport, and other local organizations in the Newport area. Over the next two weeks, from now until March 28th,  there will be screenings of French, Belge, and Quebecoise films. The films are recent–all of them have been released within the past three years.

The first screening, Monsieur Lazhar (2011), was held at the Jane Pickens Theater. The rest of the films will be shown in Bazarsky Lecture Hall in O’Hare Academic Center at Salve Regina University.

It was a great film to watch–I would encourage anyone to see it. Even though the film was released two years ago, I think it’s a reflective meditation in a time of crisis. I don’t want to give anything away, but if you are curious to learn more about Monsieur Lazhar, here’s the trailer:
