There’s a lot going on these days at Armstrong Atlantic State University.
CNN was recently on campus for major coverage of immigration issues, there’s a significant new academic initiative for first-year students called First Class, American Idol winner Phillip Phillips will be performing a concert soon, plus there’s always a variety of other news on the university’s homepage.
From the official description of this year’s Francophone Film Festival:
The Francophone Festival will commence on Thursday, Feb. 21, at 7:00 p.m., with a screening of the Oscar Award-winning film â€œThe Artist.â€ The event will open with introductory remarks about French culture in the southeast from Dennis Blackburn, Savannahâ€™s Honorary Consul to France and Germany. A reception, also open to the public, will follow â€œThe Artistâ€ and will feature French culinary delights provided by downtown Savannahâ€™s Papillote restaurant.
In addition to â€œThe Artist,â€ the Francophone Film Festival will feature two dramas, â€œDomaineâ€ and â€œLa Princesse de Montpensier,â€ and two animated films, â€œLes Contes de la Nuitâ€ and â€œUn Vie de Chat.â€
There are double features on both Friday and Saturday nights. All screenings are in the Ogeechee Theatre in the Student Union, 2nd floor. That’s building #11 on this map.
