Attend this film festival: Boston French Film Festival @ the MFA

The next best thing to spending a week in Paris and taking in its vast film scene is attending the Boston French Film Festival at the Museum of Fine Arts. Now in its 17th year, the event continues to present the best of the most recent offerings from what is still one of the most vital film industries in the world. Just in time for Bastille Day, it opens tonight with the lush period drama Farewell, My Queen (2011 | July 12 @ 7:30 pm), a chronicle of the tragic, decadent last days of Marie Antoinette and her court at Versailles before the mobs descended with their pitchforks and rights of man. With Diane Kruger as the Queen and Léa Seydoux as her loyal maid, it is directed by the veteran filmmaker Benoît Jacquot, who will be attending the screening. The Museum is at 465 Huntington Ave, Boston | Thursday, July 12-Sunday, July 29 | $152 full festival pass; $122 students, seniors + $95 half pass;$76 students, seniors | 617.369.3907 or
