French films play a significant role in world cinema, and the MFAH film program offers a variety year-round. In 2011, the MFAH launched the showcase Five Funny French Films to explore the comedy genre. The first two editions were great successes, with standing-room-only crowds. Each series features new French films that have been popular crowd-pleasers. The 2013 series takes place Thursday to Sunday, March 21 to March 24 and offers un petit extra with an additional film by Pierre Etaix.
Presented during French Cultures Festival 2013 with generous support from L'Alliance Francaise de Houston; The French Embassy/French Cultural Services; the Consulate General of France in Houston; Texan-French Alliance for the Arts; and Nina and Michael Zilkha.
