The December edition of the monthly French Cinémathèque series organized by the Cultural Service of the Embassy of France presents the screening of Hitchcock et la nouvelle vague (2007), a documentary film by Jean-Jacques Bernard.

French New Wave directors Claude Chabrol, Jacques Rivette, Eric Rohmer, Jean-Luc Godard, and François Truffaut became filmmakers after having been enthusiastic Alfred Hitchcock fans. Through this film production, Bernard sought to discover how their approach to the "British master of Hollywood" nourished their personal growth as filmmakers during the 1950s. 

Chabrol, Rivette, and Rohmer agreed to participate in this questioning and their interviews are accompanied by excerpts of Hitchcock sound recordings offered by Truffaut. Luc Moullet and Charles Bitsch, also fervent fans of Hitchcock, express their points of view in this film and explain his historical impact. Hitchcock et la nouvelle vague will be screened in French with English subtitles. 

To celebrate the last edition of the French Cinémathèque in 2014, the Cultural Service of the Embassy of France will offer free admission to this screening. Reservations are required here

The documentary film, Hitchcock et la nouvelle vague, is part of the French Film Festival Selection collection, a project that began in 2013 by French Film Festival co-directors Françoise Ravaux-Kirkpatrick and Peter S. Kirkpatrick, who select, edit, and distribute the films that were either part of previous French Film Festival programs or part of the three-day symposium, French Films: Art, Science and Technology at Work for Humanity, which took place in 2012.

The French Film Festival, presented by University of Richmond and Virginia Commonwealth University, is co-founded and co-directed since 1992 by Françoise Ravaux-Kirkpatrick, professor of French and Film Studies at the University of Richmond, and Peter Kirkpatrick, associate professor of French and Film Studies at VCU. The 23rd edition of the French Film Festival will take place from March 26 to 29, 2105.
