Films On The Beach Festival Returns to Miami

Godard, Truffaut, Tati: the 2016 Films On The Beach festival is back in Miami on Thursday, March 3rd and runs until Thursday, May 12th, ready to delight francophile cinéastes. And even better than the program itself, the entire shebang is free!

The program features two movies per month, with a special screening of Jacque Rivette’s 1960 classic Paris Belongs To Us (Paris Nous Appartient) at the Miami Beach Cinemathéque on April 7th. The festival will open with a screening of Jean Renoir’s Boudu Saved From Drowning (Boudu Sauvé Des Eaux) at the Miami Beach Soundscape, which is not to be confused with the Miami Sound Machine. This year’s festival is organized by the Cultural Services of the Embassy of France to the United States and features films centered thematically around Paris, so it’s no surprise seeing Louis Malle’s Zazie In The Metro and Playtime by Jacques Tati on the list.
