Films On The Green 2013

Films on the Green is a free outdoor French film festival produced since 2008 in New York City parks by the French EmbassyFACE Foundation and the NYC Parks.

Jealousy, seduction, passion...  In its sixth year, Films on the Green explores the many facets of love with works by established and new directors. French is the language of love, or so the saying goes.  But behind this cliché is a multitude of cinematic possibilities.
