Learning Beyond the Classics

Albertine Cinémathèque and Contemporary French Film
Through a partnership with the Albertine Cinémathèque and its Film Festival (fka the Tournées Film Festival), this course will bring a survey of Francophone films to the Michiana community.

Pairing it with Learning Beyond the Classics, the Albertine Cinémathèque Film Festival as a course will reflect the diversity and the richness of French cinema through various genres — fiction, documentary, and repertory films — made by emerging directors and legends from both inside and outside France. The resulting mélange of voices and styles offers enrollees the opportunity to experience through a panoramic lens the past, present, and future of French cinema.
