Austin Film Society (AFS) announces the 2023 lineup for New French Cinema Week, a festival of new international films by up-and-coming Francophone filmmakers. The festival will run from Thursday, November 9, to Sunday, November 12, at AFS Cinema and will feature appearances by filmmakers at several screenings. AFS will also host an opening-night reception on November 9, with regional French wines and complimentary light bites, which is open to all those attending that evening’s film.

Saturday, November 11, features two Q&A discussions with filmmakers: Jean-Baptiste Durand will join audiences virtually to discuss his film Junkyard Dog (which will be preceded by Garance Kim’s short Eternal City), and Vincent Fontano will discuss his Sundance and Black Star-selected short film Sèt Lam in person as part of this year’s New French Shorts program.
