Doxa Documentary Film Festival FRENCH FRENCH Program

April 23, 2015 | By francecanadaculture Vancouver

As part of French French, we are proud to present a special selection of films drawn from the legendary series Cinéma, de notre temps (Cinema, of Our Time). This group of films traces the evolution of French cinema from Jean Renoir to Alain Cavalier. André S. Labarthe will personally introduce the program on Saturday May 2, 2015 at 11:00 AM with a special talk at SFU’s Goldcorp Centre for the Arts.

Six French filmakers will be coming to attend DOXA film festival and be available for some Q&A sessions and even some free Masterclass.
