Francophile alert! This year, Unifrance Films is partnering with L.A.'s Laemmle Theatres, New York's Film Society of Lincoln Center, and Emerging Pictures to present the 17th "Rendez-Vous with French Cinema." The series sets out to highlight the best of contemporary French film by screening seven films in over 50 U.S. cities in March.

This year for the first time digital specialty distributor Emerging Pictures' technology will turn some digital showings in select cities into interactive events by allowing audiences to participate in Q&A sessions with directors and actors, broadcast live from Lincoln Center's Walter Reade and Brooklyn's BAMcinematek Theaters.

2012's program includes Rabah Ameur-Zalmeche's period profile of folksinger/bandit Louis Mandrin, "Smugglers' Songs"; Laurent Achard's thriller "The Last Screening" (above), set in a reportory cinema; director-star Mathieu Amalric's update of Coreneille's tragicomedy ""Illusion Comique"; and "Pater," a political satire from another director-star, Alain Cavalier, who teams up with actor Vincent Lindon.

The promotional trailer for the series, posted below, showcases past and present French cinema.
