Film at Lincoln Center turns 50 with French Films

Image: "Cleo from 5 to 7" directed by Agnès Varda

On the occasion of its golden anniversary, Film at Lincoln Center offers to New York movie lovers a free summer playlist. From June to September, Film at Lincoln Center will continue to celebrate its semi-centennial with a series of double features presented free of charge.

The lineup features 20 films to be screened across 10 Thursdays, culminating on September 11 with a final selection to be decided by a public vote. The “mixtape” zigzags across recent film history, pairing titles in a way that speaks to cinema’s diversity of expression, and includes important premieres and acclaimed films from Film at Lincoln Center’s most popular year-round festivals, series, and new releases.

Here are the French productions and coproductions featured in this special anniversary series.
