Bid boredom adieu with seven subtitled screenings at the University of Virginia’s French Film Festival. Award-winning Cameroonian director Jean-Pierre Békolo leads discussions on his filmmaking practices in the sci-fi erotic thriller Les Saignantes and the controversial political drama Le Président. Additional films run the gamut from a star-studded melodrama (De Rouille et d’Os, featuring Marion Cotillard) to a charming animated feature (Le Chat du Rabbin).

Wednesday 2/12 through 2/16. Free, times and venues vary. For info visit pages.shanti.virginia.edu/2014_UVA_FFF.
