UGA French Film Festival

The University of Georgia French Film Festival returns to campus every Tuesday during the month of February.

This year’s festival is a tribute to the work of French women in front of and behind the camera. The selected films include performances by well-known French actresses such as Marion Cotillard and Isabelle Hupert, and all but one boast female directors.

Each screening will begin with a short introduction and will be followed by an optional discussion with UGA’s own student-run film organization Ciné-club.

The festival is funded in part by the department of romance languages French fund and co-sponsored by the department of theatre and film studies and Cinematic Arts. Screenings will be held at 8 p.m. in Tate Theater every Tuesday from February 6-February 27. Screenings will be free for all UGA students and $3 for non-students.
