College of Charleston's French Film Festival is back

Persepolis plays Saturday, August 28, at 4 P.M. at the Olde North Charleston Picture House.

Not sure why we didn't get around to mentioning this one sooner, but the College of Charleston's annual French Film Festival is running through Sunday, August 29.

This year it's playing out at the Sottile Theater, the Olde North Charleston Picture House, and the John Rivers Communications Museum.

Charleston Scene has a nice overview of the festival that can be read here.

I pasted the festival lineup and ticket info below.
