IVC to Host first-ever French Film Festival

IVC's first-ever French film festival will be held on campus from March 25 to April 2, 2011. Arising from an idea that came to Professor Dan Rivas during his sabbatical in Spring 2010 the Tournees Film Festival will feature five new French films, including PERSEPOLIS (2007) by Vincent Paronnaud and Marjane Satrapi, HOME (2007) by Ursula Meier, RICKY (2008) by Francois Ozon, BLUE BEARD (2008) by Catherine Breillat and THE GIRL ON THE TRAIN by Andre Techine. The film festival was made possible with the support of the Cultural Services of the French Embassy and the French Ministry of Culture (CNC). It is co-sponsored by the Irvine Valley College French Department, Honors Program, Film Studies Program, and Music Department, with generous support from the Associated Students of Irvine Valley College.  Admission to the film festival is free, but seating will be limited. Each film will be shown in Room A311 and tickets will be available one hour prior to each show.  For more information, drivas@ivc.edu​
