January showcase includes 'Summer Tour'
Ten films from emerging directors will screen online via My French Film Festival in January.
Sponsored by Unifrance, France’s film promotion agency, the films will be viewable worldwide from Jan. 14-29.
Viewers, bloggers and film critics will vote for the films, which will stream with subtitles. Ten short films are also included in the fest; the entire program can be viewed for under $20.
Kicking off the online fest, Christopher Thompson’s debut pic “The Last Summer Tour” screens Jan. 13 in New York with a Q&A by the director.
Other films set to stream include helmer Riad Sattouf’s “The French Kissers,” Pascal Elbe’s “Turk’s Head” and Herve Mimran and Geraldine Nakache’s “All That Glitters.” — Pat Saperstein
