Films on The Green Festival


Time Out says

This free outdoor French film festival is back with a sports-themed lineup in honor of the Olympics in Paris this summer. The festival is hosted by Villa Albertine, and this year’s edition features 11 French films with English subtitles across Manhattan and Brooklyn parks. Expect a mix of classic and contemporary movies, all on the theme of “Sports on Film.”

"The lineup proves that sports films, a stereotypically American genre, are very much alive and thriving in French cinema," event organizers say.

Here's the 2024 schedule:

May 31, Central Park: Sink or Swim by Gilles Lellouche
June 7, Washington Square Park: Final Set by Quentin Reynaud
