University of Georgia French Film Festival to show French films throughout February


This year, February won’t just mean Valentine’s Day for regular lovers, but for French film lovers as well. The University of Georgia French Film Festival will be showing a different French film every Tuesday at 8 p.m. in Tate theatre for the entire month of February. This year’s theme is focusing on women in film and behind the camera.

Robert Neupert, a film studies professor at UGA, explained how there was no place in Athens dedicated to showing foreign films. Once Ciné had opened, he immediately became a member on the board of directors and believed that this would be a great opportunity to bring foreign films, especially French films, to Athens.

“We started bringing more French films to town. Before that, there really wasn’t a theatre regularly running anything foreign,” Neupert said.
