The selections include new works from auteur Damien Odoul and master filmmakers Patrice Leconte and the late Claude Miller, as well as films featuring French stars like Audrey Tatou, Roman Duris and Charlotte Gainsbourg.

"Showing six of these films in the series over seven days, we realize that this rendezvous is a virtual cinematic feast for Francophiles," said Michael Traupman, Civic Theatre Managing Director.

"Persecution," 5 p.m. April 10
