      For the last ninth years, Films on the Green has brought contemporary and classic French cinema to New York City and has expanded tremendously from presenting at small community gardens to the notable grassy venues of Central Park, Washington Square Park and Riverside Park. 

      Festival themes have varied over the years and ranged from musical comedies and Mediterranean cinema to literary adaptations. The Festival continues to expand and evolve with ambition, energy and enthusiasm, thanks to the generous support of individual and corporate donors.

      A partnership with the Films on the Green festival and the French Cultural Services will offer your company wide spread recognition and further a commitment to the arts and French culture in America. We are convinced that sponsoring Films on the Green will be a rewarding and memorable experience.
