The Tournées Festival of French Film 

at Georgia State University

Join us on Thursday, March 28th for our opening night screening of A Cat in Paris at 7:00 pm

Plaza Theater
1049 Ponce De Leon Ave NE  Atlanta, GA 30306

This exhilarating hand-drawn animated film by Jean-Loup Felicioli and Alain Gagnol tells the story of a cat with not nine but two lives. During the day, kitty Dino lives with Zoe, a mute little girl and at night, Dino becomes the accomplice of Nico, a good-hearted burglar. Dino and Nico—the cat and the cat burglar—join forces to save Zoe after she falls in the hands of the gangster who murdered her father.


The Tournées Festival of Contemporary French Film will host its second annual stop-motion animation workshop in conjunction with MINT and ASIFA Atlanta on Saturday, March 16th. Lead by artist and animator, Chelsea Raflo, participants will work together to create the opening reel for the French Film Festival. We've outlined the general set-up, but the strength of the piece will rest entirely on participants' enthusiasm, creativity, and diligence.  

While prior experience is not required, we'll first select participants who have some background or demonstrable interest/skill in art, animation, filmmaking, motion graphics, or design  in the event that we are overbooked.
