San Francisco’s L’Amour Fou With French Cinema

Written by: FFT Webmaster | September 30th, 2011

The San Francisco Film Society, in association with the French American Cultural Society, the French Consulate of San Francisco and Unifrance, will present its annual l’amour fou with French cinema from October 27 to November 2. French Cinema Now offers a taste of the diversity of French-language cinema of the past year. Among the 11 selections on tap are the latest films by established masters The Dardenne Brothers (KID WITH A BIKE) and Aki Kaurismäki (LE HAVRE), as well as lesser known but equally prodigious filmmakers as Mia Hansen-Løve, Pierre Schoeller, Emmanuelle Devos and Martin Provost. “French-language film continues to be a strong and vibrant force in world cinema and we’re thrilled to be able to present a rich selection to a city that we know appreciates francophone film,” said Rachel Rosen, Film Society director of programming.
