Films on the Green is going… green! For its second year running, the popular free outdoor French film festival will feature in June movies about the environment and the beauty of the natural world, as we seek to tackle the challenges of global warming and environmental degradation.

In July, Films on the Green will continue its free outdoor screenings with lighter fare, three comedies, in keeping with the summer spirit.
