COLCOA French Film Festival 2018

Now in its 22nd year, the COLCOA French Film Festival screens dozens of the latest motion pictures from France, as well as a few time-tested audience favorites. The 2018 edition honors filmmaker and actress Mélanie Laurent (best known to American audiences as Shosanna Dreyfus in Quentin Tarantino’s Inglourious Basterds). Fans can catch the U.S. premiere of her latest effort behind the camera, Plonger (Diving), about a photographer who feels suffocated by her new role as a mother and takes off on her own. At the lighter end of the spectrum, this year’s selection of classics includes Francis Veber’s Le Diner de Cons (The Dinner Game) and Bertrand Blier’s Préparez Vos Mouchoirs (Get Out Your Handkerchiefs), comedies from 1998 and 1978 respectively.
