Rendez-Vous with French Cinema 2019

Get ready to enjoy some of the best in contemporary French cinema. Beginning Thursday, February 8 through Sunday, March 10, the Film Society of Lincoln Center will host the 24th edition of the film festival Rendez-Vous with French Cinema. This annual festival celebrates the variety and vitality of French film-making and will feature works by newcomers, films directed by women, and celebrate well-known directors. Screening works include: Louis-Julien Petit's Invisibles, a spirited, character-driven social-realist drama about a daytime shelter for homeless women; the New York premiere of The Trouble with You, the latest comic whirlwind from Rendez-Vous alum Pierre Salvadori; Sébastien Marnier's sophomore thriller School's Out which takes place in the French countryside; and many more notable picks! Click here for a full line-up. 

In conjunction, the festival is holding a contest for cinephiles under 30: interested writers can submit a review of a Rendez-Vous film of their choice, and the best critique will win a round-trip flight to Paris and a free one-year subscription to TV5MONDE. Visit for more information.

Tickets go on sale Friday, February 8 (early access for Film Society members began Monday, February 4). Tickets are $17; $12 for members, students, seniors, and persons with disabilities; Opening Night tickets are $25; $20 for members and students.
