Calendar of Events
European Film Festival
Thursday, May 08, 2014 - Friday, May 09, 2014
Europhiles will love the two evenings of double features offered by organizers of the European Film Festival, who are dovetailing the event with the Euro-American Celebration events taking place across South Louisiana this week (mostly in New Orleans). These events are meant to enrich cross-cultural understanding between Americans and the European Union, whose relationship can be fraught with cliches and stereotypes.
