Paris. Cannes. Richmond. Every spring for the past 13 years, French filmmakers, producers and actors make a trip across the Atlantic to showcase their films and answer questions from the festival’s audience. So when you buy a ticket for a movie at this festival, a trip inside the filmmaker's heart and mind comes along with it. For two weeks, at the largest French film festival outside of France, cultural lines are blurred as Richmond is treated to a slice of French Life.
