French cinema is as varied and vital as ever in 2013, and this year’s edition of Rendez-vous with French Cinema covers the wide spectrum from grand and engaging entertainments like Régis Roinsard’s Populaire (Opening Night) to the work of uncompromising auteurs like 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. Presented by Unifrance Films and the Film Society of Lincoln Center.

Additional screenings take place at the IFC Center and BAM, visit for more information.
