2014 Films on the Green Festival


A play on the 1966 Godard film title Masculin Feminin, “Masculin / Masculin” presents a gamut of colorful male figures in French film—lovers, heroes, gangsters, and rebels. From love to war, and from neuroses to humor, this year’s festival offers the most memorable of themasculin in classic love stories, thrilling film noir, and deadpan French comedies.

All films are in French with English subtitles.

In its 7th consecutive year, Films on the Green, organized by the French Embassy, FACE and NYC Parks, presents French films in New York City parks from May 30th to August 1st, as well as a special screening at Columbia University on September 4th. All films are FREE and open to the public.
