Truffaut at the Beach

The Cultural Service of the French Embassy in Miami is hosting the first edition of its film festival Films on the Beach. In collaboration with the City of Miami Beach Arts in the Parks, the festival will showcase four films on the New Worls Symphony SoundScape.

 A 700-square-foot projection of Truffaut's classics, the 400 Blows and Jules et Jim is scheduled for the first half of the festival in April, in partnership with Tigertail's FLA-FRA.

The festival takes a catty turn during its May screenings with the projection of A Cat in Paris and The Rabbi's Cat. 

Inspired by Films on the Green by the Cultural Services of the French Embassy based in New York City, Films on the Beach proposes an exiting selection of both Nouvelle Vague classics and animation films (France is a leading player in the animation market), free of cost, and in an enjoyable outdoor setting that's very representative of Miami's lifestyle.

As a plus for any architecture buffs, the New World Center and SoundScape were designed by world-renowned architect Frank Gehry.
