Salve Regina will present its second French Film Festival from March 18-29, which is being organized by the Library and the Departments of English and Modern Languages. Six recent French films and one short film have been selected; all are free and open to the public.

Opening night, Sunday, March 18, will be at the Jane Pickens Theater; all other films will be in O'Hare Academic Center. Opening night festivities will begin at 6:15 with wine and entertainment by a French music group Manège à Trois. The trio will be playing musette, a style of French popular music featuring the accordion which flourished in the 1920s, 1930s, and 1940s. The feature film, Les Temps Qui Changent or Changing Times, to be shown at 7 p.m., involves cultural collision and unrequited love in Tangiers with France's biggest stars: Gérard Depardieu and Catherine Deneuve. Film selections were chosen to include a variety of subjects and styles.

The festival is made possible by a Tournées grant supported by the Cultural Services of the French Embassy and the French Ministry of Culture. For more information you may contact committee members: Allen Antone, Donna Harrington-Lueker, Kathy Lawber or James Mitchell.
