French Films on Campus 2014 [fr]

JPEG

French Films on Campus is a program presented by the Cultural Services of the Embassy and the Consulates of France in Canada. Its purpose is to bring the best of Contemporary French Cinema to college and university students by providing the means for them to organize their own French Film Festivals. The French Films on Campus team is pleased to bring you a rich selection covering a variety of subjects and genres that range from comedy and action to animation and documentary. The majority of the selected films are in French with English subtitles with only one film in English with French subtitles, which had originally been shot in English.

In addition to the 13 new films added this year , the films from last year edition are still available!

Among the 27 films listed in our selection, you can chose 5 films or more to create your festival programming - à la carte! Along with the possibility of screening each film several times, you may also pick your own dates with no limitations regarding the length of your festival.

JPEG Screening fees have already been negotiated with the film distributors at the lowest rate by the French Cultural Services. Once you have made your film selection, simply contact the relevant distributors to pay the screening fees (distributors’ contact details and screening fees are listed in the brochure below).

We will have communication materials ready for you to use at no cost for the promotion of your French Film Festival (flyers, posters, customizable program guides…) You will also receive delivery of the screening materials – DVD or/and Blu-Ray - at no extra charge.

The Cultural Services of France in Canada would be pleased to support the invitation of professionals and to help organize masterclasses during the festival edition.

The Institut Français, the government agency in charge of implementing France’s cultural action abroad is partnering with us for French Film on Campus. For the colleges and universities with the largest potential draw, The Institut Français will cover the airfares of artists - filmmakers or actors – in an effort to allow them to present their work in person. This will provide the festival organizers with a unique opportunity to enrich their programs through Q&As, masterclasses and possibly retrospectives depending on the guest.

Partner universities : University of Toronto and Ryerson University (Ontario), Université de Sherbrooke (Québec), Simon Fraser University (British Columbia), UCAQ Chicoutimi (Québec), University of New Brunswick (Fredericton (New Scotland), University of Ottawa (Ontario), Carleton University (Ontario).
