PARIS, Aug 3 (AFP) - For those looking to see the City of Light in a new light, Paris city hall has organised a month-long open-air film festival featuring 16 classics all set in the French capital.

The event will begin Wednesday with a screening of Jean-Luc Godard's "A Woman is a Woman", to be shown on the side of a building at the foot of the Sacre-Coeur basilica in the city's famed Montmartre district.

City officials will mark the 60th anniversary of the liberation of Paris with an August 26 showing of Rene Clement's "Is Paris Burning?" starring Kirk Douglas and Jean-Paul Belmondo, on the square in front of city hall.

The festival program - which runs through August 26 - also includes Stanley Donen's "Charade" starring Cary Grant and Audrey Hepburn, and Tonie Marshall's romantic comedy "Venus Beauty Institute".
