April In Paris 2021
Welcome back to April in Paris, the Festival of French and Francophone Cinema that for 21 years has announced the arrival of Spring to Hartford! After having to cancel last year, we are thrilled to present Grâce au Cinéma… Although literally translated as Thanks to Cinema, grâce has many meanings in French: a state of religious transcendence, elegance, forgiveness, tolerance and beauty. Each of the six films in this year’s festival celebrates an aspect of this grâce, and reminds us how the “seventh art” of filmmaking brings us happiness, and new ways of seeing the world. Thanks to the Tournées Festival in partnership with the French American Cultural Exchange (FACE) foundation.
