Cinémathèque Française
New + classic French film
May 21 - 31 2011

Vive le cinéma français! Thanks to generous sponsors, the Doris Duke is delighted to bring you Cinémathèque Française. This festival showcases three classic gems and six of the best new premieres from France—all gleaned from the crème de la crème of French film festivals, including New York City’s famed Rendez-Vous.


Opening night reception: Saturday, May 21 from 6-7:30pm. A complimentary glass of fine French wine, cheese, and bread from R. Field will be included in the ticket.

Make it dinner and a movie: EAT Catering & Cafe will feature a prix-fixe, French-inspired meal and dessert. Dinners must be purchased online in advance. Price for dinner + movie: $35 for non-members; $30 for Academy members/Alliance Française of Hawaii members (AFH). Tickets without the meal are $15 for non-members; $10 for members/AFH members. During the reception, Pierre Grill will play French songs on the accordion. See below the synopsis of Potiche to purchase tickets for the dinner + movie. The prix-fixe meal must be ordered in advance and online by May 19.
