One of my favorite Richmond events is happening this weekend, the French Film Festival. Each March you can hear French spoken in the wonderful, historic Byrd Theater and throughout our Carytown neighborhood.
The films can be hit or miss, depending on your penchant for ennui, but they usually haven’t been released in the states yet. Directors and actors discuss the films and often they get distribution after appearing at our festival. Pretty cool.
Tonight Scott and I are going to the headlining film, Jean & Béatrice, starring the adorable Amélie Glenn, who will discuss the film afterwards with her co-star, Nicolas Melocco, the director and producer. Can’t wait.
