Updated April 24, 2014 - The Friday morning film is the award-winning documentary, How I Came to Hate Math. Check back for daily updates.
Fewer foreign films have been shown in theaters this year. Make up for the loss with a slew of free screenings at the Col Coa, City of Lights, City of Angels, French Film Festival. Every morning from Wednesday, April 23, 2014 thru Sunday, April 27, 2014, the public is invited to see a rerun of a new French film, which was shown at the festival earlier in the week. You don't have to speak French to enjoy them. All films have English subtitles. The complimentary screenings are held at 11 a.m. in the smaller Truffaut Theatre at the Directors Guild (DGA), located at 7920 Sunset Boulevard during the week. The Saturday morning screening starts at 9:30 a.m., and the Sunday one begins at 9 a.m. Titles aren't announced until the evening before the screening at 10 p.m.
Popular films at the festival tend to be rerun. Will it be: Claude LeLouch's We Love You, You Bastard (Salaud, on t’aime), Diane Kury's For A Woman (Pour une femme), the controversial Young and Beautiful (Jeune et jolie), or Roman Polanski's Venus in Fur (La Vénus à la Fourrure)? Check the DGA lobby, Col Coa's Facebook page, Col Coa's Twitter page, or the Col Coa info line at 310.289.5346 after 10 p.m. to find out what will be screening the next morning.
Complimentary croissants and coffee are provided in the Col Coa lounge for attendees, starting at 10:15 a.m. Wednesday through Friday. Admission is on a first come, first served basis, so arrive early. RSVPs are not accepted. If you want to see specific films, you can always buy individual tickets to other screenings for $11 here.
