Films on the Green is a free outdoor French film festival produced annually in New York City parks by the Cultural Services of the French Embassy and NYC Parks. Initiated in 2008, Films on the Green has become a not-to-be-missed free event amid the vibrant New York City summer cultural offerings. Over the years, the festival has brought classic and contemporary French cinema to New Yorkers, each season’s films spanning different themes from environment or musicals to literary adaptations. This year’s festival celebrates love “à la française”.

Films on the Green at Columbia is organized in partnership with The Maison Française of Columbia University
