The Robert Classic French Film Festival is the first CSL in-person event since the Covid-19 pandemic. The host venues — Washington University on Aug. 13-15 and Webster University on Aug. 20-22 and 27-29 — have not yet determined whether capacity limits or masks will be required. Details will be announced on the CSL website when available.

The fest annually includes significant restorations, and this year features a quintet of such works: Melvin Van Peebles' "The Story of a Three-Day Pass," Diane Kurys' "Entre Nous," Joseph Losey's "Mr. Klein," Jacques Deray's "La piscine," and the extended director's cut of Jean-Jacques Beineix's "Betty Blue."

The fest also provides one of the few opportunities available in St. Louis to see films projected the old-school, time-honored way, with Agnes Varda's "Vagabond" screening from a 35mm print.

As part of CSL's year-long Golden Anniversaries programming, which features films celebrating their 50th anniversaries, the fest includes a pair of films from 1971: François Truffaut's "Two English Girls" and Claude Jutra's French-Canadian "Mon oncle Antoine."

Completing the fest is a pandemic-delayed tribute to the late Anna Karina, who died in December 2019: Jean-Luc Godard's essential "Vivre sa vie."

Every program features introductions and discussions by film or French scholars and critics.

All films are in French with English subtitles ("The Story of a Three-Day Pass" is in both English & French).

TV5MONDE serves as the fest's presenting sponsor, and the Jane M. & Bruce P. Robert Charitable Foundation is the event's title sponsor.
