The Tournées Festival on Florida Campuses

This spring semester of 2013, 4 universities in Florida have received a grant from FACE’s Tournées Festival program to show French films on campus.


The Tournées Festival is a program of FACE (French American Cultural Exchange), in partnership with the Cultural Services of the French Embassy, which aims to bring contemporary French cinema to American college and university campuses. The program distributes close to $200,000 in grants annually to encourage schools to begin their own self-sustaining French film festivals. Now in its 16th year, The Tournées Festival has partnered with more than 350 universities, making it possible for more than 450,000 students to discover French-language films.

The list of universities along with the dates they will be showing French films can be found below. For further information and for the full program, please click on the corresponding links.
