Francophile Alert! The 16th edition of L.A.'s French film festival COL*COA ("City of Lights, City of Angels") has revealed its first programming selections to unspool starting April 16 in Hollywood.

Writer-director and cinephile Alexander Payne (who recently took home a Best Adapted Screenplay Oscar for "The Descendants") has revealed his "carte blanche" programming pick: Marcel Carné's 1938 classic "Hotel du Nord." The drama about a botched double suicide stars Jean-Paul Aumont, Annabella, Arletty and Louis Jouvet.
 
On the 20th anniversary of his death, the fest will celebrate French icon Yves Montand (who starred in Jean-Pierre Melville's "The Red Circle," Henri-Georges Clouzot's "The Wages of Fear" and Claude Berri's "Jean de Florette") with a restored digital presentation of Jean-Paul Rappeneau's "Le Sauvage," which also stars Catherine Deneuve. (The project is sponsored by the Franco American Cultural Fund and the Cinémathèque Française.) Montand's last companion, Carole Amiel, and Cinémathèque director Serge Toubiana will lead a panel discussion on the singer-actor following the film.
 
The fest will also honor Franco-American actress-writer-director Julie Delpy with a screening of "2 Days in Paris," co-starring Adam Goldberg, followed by a discussion with Delpy, as well as the North American premiere of her new French comedy "Le Skylab."
