Film Series

Ever since the Auguste and Louis Lumie held the first private screening of moving images in Paris in 1895, cinema has long been avital part of culture of the French-speaking world. Villanova's program in French and Francophone Studies maintains this tradition by offering a series of French-language films.

Organized by the Cercle francais, or French Club, these films — usually three or four per semester are open to the entire Villanova community, and they are always in French, with English subtitles. They represent the rich diversity of the "septie art" by showing films from all over the French-speaking world, from classics of France's "nouvelle vague" to recent releases.

Below you will see titles and posters of a few recent films; don't hesitate to contact the Cercle francais, to make requests, to help organize film showings, and to lend your support to the greater understanding of world cultures that comes from the cinematic experience.

For more information, please contact the advisor to theCercle Francais.
