Rendez-Vous with French Cinema is Film at Lincoln Center’s annual program of recent French movie releases, featuring popular and arthouse fare alike. This year’s 26th edition — happening virtually, of course — includes titles like Little Girl, about a young trans girl’s fight for recognition from her school; Spring Blossom, in which 20-year-old director Suzanne Lindon plays a high-schooler whose flights of fancy spill over into reality; and My Donkey, My Lover, and I, about a woman who rents a donkey for a trip in the same mountains her married boyfriend is touring with his family (an incredibly French premise)

Talks are available to view for free. Tickets to stream individual films cost $12 (except Little Girl, which is $17). FLC members get a 20% discount on virtual cinema rentals. An all-access pass for the festival can be purchased for $165.

When: Through March 14
Where: Online
