Leading up to this year's Rendez-Vous with French Cinema, we're celebrating post-New Wave, award-winning French filmmaker Patrice Chéreau, who died last October and whose filmmaking spanned over 30 years.
The 19th Rendez-Vous with French Cinema (March 6 - 16) will open with Emmanuelle Bercot's On My Way with star Catherine Deneuve in person, and will close with Bertrand Tavernier's The French Minister. Twenty-four features from established and "next New Wave" filmmakers are set for this year's roster.
The Walter Reade Theater played host to an impressive group of French filmmakers and stars presenting and discussing their films and cinema for the Film Society of Lincoln Center faithful from March 4 - 13.
