The French Film Festival presents recent and classic French films. The lineup features several titles by Jacques Demy, including his landmark The Umbrellas of Cherbourg (2 p.m. Sunday, Aug. 4), the 1964 musical that made Catherine Deneuve an international star. Something in the Air captures the zeitgeist of young political radicals in Paris in the late 1960s and early 1970s. Populaire (7:30 p.m. Wed., Aug. 7, pictured) is a comedy about a young secretary styled like a French Mad Men. Renoir (7 p.m. Fri., Aug. 2, and noon Wed., Aug. 7) is a drama about the Impressionist painter in his later years when he meets a vibrant new model and enters a period of inspiration and rejuvenation. Visit the New Orleans Film Society website for schedule and details. Tickets $11 per film, $10 for film society members. — WILL COVIELLO
