French Film Festival
It was created at Virginia Commonwealth University in 1993. It is billed as the largest festival of French film in the United States. Since then, it has welcomed a delegation totaling 160 directors, producers, actors, film scholars, critics, and French government officials. At the 2004 Festival, the Festival’s founders and directors, Drs. Peter and Françoise Ravaux-Kirkpatrick, were decorated as “Chevaliers de l’Ordre des Arts et des Lettres”, a high honor in the arts in France, and in 2011, the Médaille Beaumarchais by the French Société des Auteurs et Compositeurs Dramatiques.
The festival usually takes place the last weekend of March, during which the city is filled with French speakers and aficionados of French cinema. It is held at the historic Byrd Theatre. At the 2010 Festival, there were approximately 22,000 attendees/tickets sold.
