Minneapolis St. Paul (MSP) Film Society’s annual celebration of French and francophone cinema returns to Minneapolis on July 12-18, with movie premiering on the first week-end (Friday 12th to Sunday 14th). The festival showcases new and acclaimed French and francophone films, from rebellious comedies to exquisite dramas and vivid documentaries, some of them being also screened as part of MSP’s Images of Africa program. This eclectic series includes two features from our Young French Cinema, which is a program of UniFrance & Villa Albertine.
