Semaine De La Francophonie


For Semaine de la Francophonie 2017, come celebrate your francophonie by discovering francophone cultures and share YOUR francophonie. Feel free to ask your teachers about francophonie and discuss the subject in class, to join us during our Breakfast à la Française, to participate to the photo contest "Et en plus, je parle français!" or even discover a few surprises in the Alliance Française building.

The 3rd French Film Festival's theme is  L'Amour et la Violence (Love and Violence). It will present seven French movies and four short-films by Manitoban film directors at the Winnipeg Cinematheque. Movies will all be screened in French with English subtitles. Our guest programmer, Winnipeg director and producer Damien Ferland, chose a programmation emblematic of the diversity of French cinema, offering movies of a variety of genres, time periods and directors. Full schedule and tickets are available on the Winnipeg Cinematheque website.
