Film festival returns to Regis

March 19, 2008

Regis College was selected as one of only six colleges in the state to host the Tournées Film Festival, sponsored by the French American Cultural Exchange (FACE). The festival runs Monday, March 31, through Tuesday, April 8.

Launched in 1995, the festival grants are awarded annually to encourage college and university students to view contemporary French films. This festival is made possible with the support of the Cultural Services of the French Embassy and the French Ministry of Culture (CNC). The films that are featured in the festival deal with a range of topics including French history, politics, education and class differences, and aim to develop awareness about French culture. Regis College was also awarded a grant by FACE in 2006.

“I envision this film festival as a dynamic cultural event that will provide a social activity and an educational opportunity for the larger community in our region as well as our own graduate and undergraduate students and academic community,” said Claudia Pouravelis, director of Graduate Admission.

The films for this year’s festival are: March 31: “Après Vous” (After You); April 1: “La Moustache” (The Mustache); April 2: “Le Plafond de Verre” (The Glass Ceiling); April 7: “Delwende: Leve-Toi et Marche” (Delwende: Get Up and Walk); April 8: “Comme Une Image” (Look at me).

All films are free and open to the public and will be shown at Regis College at 7 p.m. in College Hall Room 202. Refreshments will be served. For more information, call 781-768- 7058.

It collaborates with the Cultural Services of the French Embassy in the United States to bring music, dance, theater, cinema, education, and the visual arts to students.
