The offerings in this year's French & Francaphone Film Festival were chosen to offer "a deepest experience of discovering the other." Sponsored by the School of Modern Languages, the festival screened eight films that delve into human relationships and how people deal with fear resulting from being forced out of one's comfort zone.

Modern Languages Assistant Professor Stephanie Boulard, who curated the event had the intention of moving audiences beyond tolerance, to getting to know people of different cultures and religions.

Boulard said the bad economy was a challenge to developing this year's program. She worked with the French Ministry of Foreign Affairs and Universcine to build a high quality, lowered cost festival and also built a sense of community around the event by drawing volunteers from the Georgia Tech French Club and students from her French classes.

Films shown during the week April 7-13 included Le Voyage En Armenie, Le Scaphhandre et le Papillon, and Indigenes.
