“Things to Come” is a 2016 French film written and directed by Mia Hansen-Løve that shows a detailed discourse of one woman’s life as she moves through an important and unexpected transition.

Faculty members, students and members of the Alliance Française Columbia watched the film, “Things to Come” at Spears Concert Hall Oct. 17.

Tournées Film Festival is a program of the FACE Foundation, an American nonprofit organization dedicated to supporting French-American relations through innovative cultural and educational projects.

With support from the Cultural Services of the French Embassy in the United States, Tournées Film Festival and other cultural initiatives aim to usher in French cinema and culture into American colleges and universities.

This festival began at Columbia College about 10 years ago with Corinne Mann, Ph.D., French professor, as the organizer.  For this year’s festival, Columbia College will host two French films, “Things to Come” and “April and the Extraordinary World.”

L’ avenir means things to come in English, which is portrayed in the film. The film stars Isabelle Huppert as Nathalie Chazeaux, a middle-aged philosophy professor.

Columbia College will not be hosting after this year but will create opportunities for at least three French films to be played each year at CC.  The five-year contract to host this festival expires this year.

This new schedule will be hosted directly by the Communication, Language and Literature division.

Before she left from Columbia College earlier this year, Mann directed the French program and organized French events, including the Tournées Film Festival. In an interview with Christine Hait, Ph.D., English professor, she said she will continue the legacy of Mann; since Hait loves the French culture, it is one of her life goals to celebrate the diversity of French film and culture.

The college will continue to offer introductory French classes in order to promote the language and culture.

USC, Columbia Museum of Art and Alliance Française Columbia will be hosting other French films celebrating this festival.
