Seuls en Scène brings celebrated French actors and directors, as well as promising early-career artists, to Princeton University and the local community to present their work, introducing American audiences to dynamic and engaging French productions. This year, due to the ongoing global COVID-19 pandemic, we will be offering a virtual edition of the festival in collaboration with the 50th Edition of Festival d’Automne in Paris.
For the 10th edition of the annual Seuls en Scène, join us for a full weekend of HD screenings of recent works by renowned French artists including Dorothée Munyaneza, Tania de Montaigne, Marion Siéfert, David Geselson, Gisèle Vienne, and Pascal Rambert, among others.
Held in the Wallace Theater at the Lewis Arts complex on the Princeton University campus, all in-person screenings will be free with advance registration required. Events are only open to Princeton students, faculty and staff. Registration details are available on each event page listed below, or you can review all schedule and registration info directly on Eventbrite.

International sponsors include Festival d’Automne in Paris, Cultural Services of the French Embassy, the Education Department of the French Embassy, Institut français, and the French American Cultural Exchange Foundation.
