Films on the Green 2014

Fridays May 30 - Aug 1 | Special Screening Sept 4, 2014
Free French film festival in NYC Parks
Films in French with English subtitles

Films on the Green is a free outdoor French film festival produced annually in New York City parks by the Cultural Services of the French Embassy, FACE and the City of New York Parks & Recreation. Since 2008, the festival has brought classic and contemporary French cinema to New Yorkers, each season’s films cover a different theme from environment to musicals and literary adaptations.

Masculin / Masculin

A play on the 1966 Godard film title Masculin Feminin, “Masculin / Masculin” presents a gamut of colorful male figures in French film—lovers, heroes, gangsters, and rebels. From love to war, and from neuroses to humor, this year’s festival offers the most memorable of the masculin in classic love stories, thrilling film noir, and deadpan French comedies.

Free and open to the public.
All films are in French with English subtitles.
