Young French Cinema Details

“Sensuality & intellectual engagement”, “thrilling vibrancy” of “a booming new generation”, “emotional & carefree story-telling” distilling “a blend of style & intensity”... Contemporary French directors have consistently been singled out for praise by the international press in the last few years.

The YOUNG FRENCH CINEMA program is one of the most convenient entry points to their works. For the third year in a row, it offers a selection of today’s best films and filmmakers. Most of the films selected in this program have premiered in 2015/2016 in top international festivals. The program mainly focuses on rising talents, from high-profile independent works to quirky comedies, powerful documentaries on the world we live in today, and exciting shorts.

This Young French Cinema program was made possible with the support of UniFrance and the Cultural Services of the French Embassy in the U.S.

Columbus Documentary Week is made possible with the support of Puffin Foundation West.

For more information, please visit facebook.com/ISFFO.

Ghibli at GFC Details

In 2016, the film center presented Ghibli at GFC, a four-month screening series of anime giant Studio Ghibli’s films. It was the first time anywhere that the entire Ghibli catalog had been presented in order of release, and visitors travelled to Columbus from as far away as Florida and Iowa to see movies they couldn’t see anywhere else.

Now, the series has returned to the film center, which will run January 1 through February 24, culminating in the world premiere of the newest Ghibli film, The Red Turtle.

Where available, matinees will be presented with English voice acting. Evening shows will be presented in original Japanese with English language subtitles.
