French cinema is as varied and vital as ever in 2013, and the 18th annual edition of Rendez-Vous with French Cinema covers the widest possible spectrum. This range includes grand and engaging entertainments such as Régis Roinsard’s Populaire, uncompromising auteurs such as Jean-Claude Brisseau and Damien Odoul, rising independent voices including Héléna Klotz and Shalimar Preuss, and master filmmakers François Ozon, Patrice Leconte, Raymond Depardon, Nicolas Philibert and the late Claude Miller.  

Rendez-Vous with French Cinema is a co-presentation of the Film Society of Lincoln Center and uniFrance Films in association with BAMcinématek and IFC Center. The full line-up for all venues is available at RendezvousWithFrenchCinema.com
