FIAF Wes Anderson’s French Connection

Published on September 15, 2021

FIAF is proud to welcome filmmaker Wes Anderson as a guest curator this fall. French cinema has always been part of Anderson’s artistic heritage and the acclaimed auteur has picked some of his favorite French films to be screened for FIAF audiences from September 14–October 26. The series coincides with the highly anticipated release of Anderson’s star-studded film, The French Dispatch.

A free screening of the quintessential coming-of-age film Peppermint Soda opens the series on September 14 as part of FIAF’s Fête de la Rentrée. The remaining CinéSalon screenings are free only for FIAF Members.
