Rendez Vous presents diverse lineup

An eclectic lineup of 16 Gallic pics will screen at film promotion org Unifrance’s Rendez-Vous With French Cinema, which will run March 11-21 in New York.

Event will bow with Christian Carion’s spy thriller “Farewell,” starring Emir Kusturica and Guillaume Canet.

Other pics include Joann Sfar’s “Gainsbourg”; war drama “The Army of Crime”; kidnap thriller “Rapt,” starring Yvan Attal; comedy “The French Kissers”; and James Bond spoof “OSS 117: Lost in Rio,” which was one of 2009’s highest-grossing French films at the local box office.

Some lesser known, critically acclaimed titles will also unspool. These include Axelle Ropert’s comedy “The Wolberg Family,” which screened as part of Cannes Directors’ Fortnight, and Hafsia Herzi starrer “The King of Escape,” which won the special jury nod at the Gijon Film Festival.

With an annual budget of $12.1 million, Unifrance is Europe’s richest international film promotion org.
