Held from March 3 to 13 at the Lincoln Center in New York, Rendez-Vous with French Cinema will celebrate the latest films by Claire Denis, Mathieu Amalric, Jacques Audiard, among many others, with a large number of actors and directors present at the event.

The opening ceremony will be devoted to Claire Denis, who will present her new film Both Sides of the Blade (Fire), which was screened in a world premiere at the recent Berlin International Film Festival.
