French Cinema on your campus
The program “Tournées Festival”, a program of FACE, is designed to help bring contemporary French cinema to college or university campus. The Tournées Festival was conceived to encourage schools to begin their own self-sustaining French film festivals. Since its inception, the program has partnered with hundreds of universities and made it possible for more than 300,000 students to discover French-language films. The Tournées Festival distributes approximately $140,000 in grants annually thanks to the Ministry of Foreign and European Affairs, the National Center of Cinematography, the Grand Marnier Foundation, the Florence Gould Foundation and the French-American Cultural Fund (SACEM, the Writers Guild of America, the Directors Guild of America et the Motion Picture Association).
Application deadlines: June 30 for those who wish to program films in the fall semester, and October 1 for those scheduling their films in the spring semester.
