The 19th annual Boston French Film Festival will take place from July 10th to 27th at the Museum of Fine Arts in Boston. It showcases the diversity of contemporary French cinema with seasoned directors, like Catherine Breillat and Philippe Garrel, playing alongside relative newcomers like Justine Triet and Katell Quillévéré. From explosive dramas to unpredictable comedies and documentary to animation, this year’s Festival truly offers something for everybody.

The festival will open on July 10th, featuring Arnaud and Jean-Marie Larrieu's new thriller, Love is the Perfect Crime, starring Mathieu Amalric, Sara Forestier and Denis Podalydès. It will close on July 27th with Marcel Provost’s Violette, the story of the friendship between authors Violette Leduc (Emmanuelle Devos) and Simone de Beauvoir (Sandrine Kiberlain).

Tournées Festival is a program of FACE, in partnership with the Cultural Services of the French Embassy, which aims to bring contemporary French cinema to American college and university campuses. We aim not only to nurture an appreciation of French film, but also to facilitate festival organizational experience on campuses. Our objective in providing nearly $200,000 in Tournées grants every year is to fund festival endeavors that can eventually become permanent and self-sustaining. Now in its 19th year, the Tournées Festival program has partnered with over 450 universities, reaching an audience of over 500,000 students and community members across the United States. - See more at: http://facecouncil.org/TourneesFestival/#sthash.u77D6Fal.dpuf
