The movies on the programme in New York will be accompanied by a majority of their directors, who will take part in Q&A sessions after the screenings, occasionally flanked by some of their actors, such as Diane Kruger. Furthermore, four Free Talks are on the menu with Isabelle Huppert, Julie Delpy, Melvil Poupaud and the "French Touch Composers" (Grégoire Hetzel, Nicolas Jaar, Morgan Kibby, Mathieu Lamboley and Mark Snow).
