Today, March 24, 2018, marks the second day of the Museum of Fine Arts, Houston’s eighth Five Funny French Films series. Put on yearly by the museum’s outstanding Film department, the screenings promise to make you laugh out loud: last year, Tracy Stephenson, the museum’s coordinator of film and video, told the Houston Press about selecting videos for the program: “if I haven’t laughed pretty heartily in 20 minutes, I cross it off the list.”
This year’s program includes stories of love, deception, pickpockets, and of course, the Alps. See below for a schedule of films happening throughout the weekend. For tickets, go here.
