City of Lights, City of Angels (running at the Directors Guild Theater in Hollywood from from April 15 to 22) has confirmed its 2013 program of documentary features and short films, whetting our appetite with a few of its titles before the entire lineup is announced March 27.

Three films will round out COL-COA’s French documentaries:

Bruno LeBlanc’s “The Sons of Wind,” about the followers of jazz guitarist Django Reinhardt; “Becoming Traviata,” writer/director Philippe Béziat’s look at a modern staging of the titular Verdi opera; and Sébastien Lifshitz’s César-award winning “The Invisibles,” a doc tracing the milieu of homosexual society in France from the post-war to the present. Read The Hollywood Reporter’s review of “The Invisibles” from the 2012 Cannes Film Festival here.

Along with 19 other shorts in competition, the French film festival will also premiere Olivier Nakache and Eric Toledano's short film follow-up to their Oscar-nominated “The Intouchables” (2012), “Clean” (April 15). “The Intouchables” won both the Audience Award and the Critics Special Prize at last year’s COL-COA.

Watch trailers for “Becoming Traviata” and “The Invisibles,” both of which will be distributed in the US by DistriB Films, below:
