Harlem’s French scene is about to get even better. A mini-festival organized by Uptown Flicks, a Francophone film collective in Harlem, Francophone Short Films in Harlem showcases France’s “seventh art form” on Friday, November 30, and Saturday, December 1, at the Maysles cinema.

On the schedule: short films of all backgrounds, from Belgium, Benin, Burkina Faso, Cameroon, Canada, France, Côte d’Ivoire, Senegal, Switzerland, and Democratic Republic of the Congo. The themes and topics approached are varied; films feature a capitalist Santa Claus who gives beautiful gifts to rich children and sweaters to the others, a model employee called to a strange meeting, the story of a girls’ home in eastern Senegal, and many more. On the l’hexagone side of the program, on December 1 at 7pm, the public can attend a screening of “Marlon,” by Jessica Palud, about a young girl convinced that her mother, imprisoned, is a heroine. It was nominated for the 2018 Césars in the Best Short Film category.

A round-table with several directors and a cocktail party are also organized for November 30. The event is sponsored by the Organisation Internationale de la Francophonie (OIF), the general consulate of Switzerland, and French Morning.
