Not really a French event but more in parallel with the French New Wave and if anyone want to see NYC when it was gritty and had artistic individuality, catch the New Yawk New Wave series at Film Forum:

"...highlights the artistic originality of independent filmmakers in New York in the fifties through the seventies. Its insightful selections offer a thesis: the epochal efflorescence of cinematic invention of the French New Wave that burst onto the scene in the late fifties and early sixties was matched—and, in some ways, foreshadowed by, and even influenced by—the burst of movie creativity from New York’s independent filmmakers of the era..."

Now through Thursday, January 31
