The French movies featured will range from comedy to drama, and from animated movies to focus, with particular attention on renowned French actress Juliette Binoche.

Among the 15 selected movies, she stars in 4 films, which includes "The Horseman On The Roof", "Jet Lag", "Summer Hours" and a documentary on the actress called "Juliette Binoche: Sketches For A Portrait".

All tickets for the movies are sold at normal pricing. The movies themselves will be in French with English subtitles.
