Tuesday, January 9 through Tuesday, March 6.
French Institute Alliance Française (FIAF)

This awards season, the French Institute Alliance Française (FIAF), New York’s premiere French cultural center, presents the new CinéSalon series Best Actress: A César-Winner Showdown, an epic battle of France’s most talented actresses, running Tuesday, January 9 through Tuesday, March 6.

Each week at CinéSalon, FIAF will screen films starring winners of the César for Best Actress—French cinema’s highest accolade. Spanning the César awards from very first Best Actress (Romy Schneider in 1976) to the most recent (Isabelle Huppert in 2017), the series includes international hits (La Môme), cult favorites (L’important c’est d’aimer), and lesser-known gems (One Deadly Summer).

Their fierce, vulnerable, and show-stopping performances each bring unforgettable characters to life. But it’s up to the audience to decide the all-time best. Attendees can vote for their number one César-winner either in person or online through February 13, and join CinéSalon in time for this season’s César and Oscar awards with a red-carpet event on March 6 as the series culminates in a special screening starring the audience’s favorite actress.

Series curated by Pauline Conroy and Delphine Selles-Alvarez.

LongHouse Conifer Tour
Horticultural Walk with Alex Feleppa
Saturday, February 17, 2018
1:00pm – 2:30pm
LongHouse Reserve

LongHouse Reserve founder Jack Lenor Larsen was born and raised in the Pacific Northwest. Having grown up surrounded by green landscapes on a year-round basis, he observed during his first winters on the east end how grey the landscape was due to the bare deciduous oaks, beeches, and dogwoods. This led to the subsequent planting of hundreds of different conifer species, from remarkable Hemlock hedges to towering Cryptomeria. Now 40 years later, LongHouse Reserve has one of the most complete conifer collections on eastern Long Island. Bundle up and join Alex Feleppa, staff Horticulturist and certified Arborist, for an informative winter tour as our conifers and broadleaf evergreens take center stage. 

Limit 25 people (not recommended for children)
$20 non-members; members complimentary
