Films on the Green is a free outdoor French film festival produced since 2008 in New York City parks by the French Embassy, FACE Foundation and the NYC Parks.
"A summer in Paris"
With the theme "A summer in Paris", Films on the Green 2016 will offer a striking portrait of the City of Lights, its urban landscape, and cultural diversity. A selection of classic, New Wave, and contemporary films will showcase the city’s aesthetic, cultural, and cinematic history from a dramatically unconventional angle through stories of love, romance, adolescence, female identity, and urban life in Parisian and its surrounding suburbs.
Films on the Green 2016 is part of Tandem Paris-New York, a large-scale transatlantic cultural exchange between Paris and New York.
Free and open to the public.
All films are in French with English subtitles.
Music by WNYU and WHCS DJs prior to the screenings!
