Films on the Green is back this summer!

After a hard year, the beloved New York free outdoor French film festival Films on the Green is back. From July 9 to 30, the festival, whose theme this year is “Music and Cinema”, is bringing a world music tour to the New York City area with free screenings in four different Manhattan parks, including a new location in Seward Park on the Lower East Side.


The lineup will feature soundtracks by world-renowned musicians from Daft Punk to Miles Davis, and will showcase music genres from around the globe, including Mexico, Tunisia, Niger, and Spain.

For the first time, this year’s program will also offer free online screenings available on the French Embassy’s virtual film screening platform.

All screenings will be subtitled in English, free and open to the public, but capacity and tickets availability will be limited due to COVID-19 safety and capacity guidelines. Find out more about the lineup, registration and ticketing details here.
