French Films

The Alvin Sherman Library and Nova Southeastern University is proud to be hosting a French Film Festival this October and early November. We will be showing five highly acclaimed French films from the past few years. These films are diverse in style, ranging from drama to a period piece to an animated film. One film will be shown every Sunday at 1pm starting on October 13th and running until November 10th. Admission is free and the showings are open to everyone from NSU students, faculty and staff to the general public. Be sure to stop by and watch a great movie on Sundays in October and early November!

The Tournées Festival was made possible with the support of the Cultural Services of the French Embassy and the French Ministry of Culture (CNC).
