Mark your calendar: AU's French film festival is next week!

We always try to share interesting film screenings around town, and you may have noticed that those screenings cluster around the warmer seasons. It's great for those who are around after the school year, but we realize many people are back home or abroad during the summer. For those who are just joining us for the fall – or if you're on campus and have an interest in French film – we have terrific news!

American University's School of Communication has partnered with the French Embassy, Institut Fran├žais, TV5Monde, and Wolfe Video to bring you Finding Your Identity: A Festival of French Film. On September 4th and 5th at 8pm, AU will be screening two French films about identity, All is Forgiven and Tomboy, at the Woods-Brown Amphitheater. Don't worry: if you don't speak French, the films will be subtitled in English.

Foreign language film screenings on campus don't happen that often, so this is an exciting event! If you have a hankering for some cinema, set time aside next week for some on-campus movie-watchin'!

(It feels wrong to say "watchin' " in a post about French film.)
