BAR HARBOR — College of the Atlantic and Reel Pizza Cinerama are bringing the Tournées Festival of French Film to Bar Harbor. The festival selections – four features and a program of shorts – run from Friday, April 3 to Monday, April 6.
The films, many of them award-winning, range in style and genre from period romance to comedy to documentary.
Major goals of the festival are “to further French American cultural exchange and international understanding and to support contemporary creative work in the arts and education,” a college spokesman said.
The full program, including times and descriptions of the films, is available at www.reelpizza.com.
A grant from the French American Cultural Exchange in New York helped fund the festival, along with support from the Cultural Services of the French Embassy and the French Ministry of Culture (CNC).
Tickets are $6 each or $25 for a pass to all films. Admission for COA students is free (please bring college ID).
