The twelfth edition of FIAF's Festival, Crossing the Line, will take place in New York City from September 18 to October 13, 2018.

Crossing the Line is an international arts festival for New York City produced by the French Institute Alliance Française (FIAF) in partnership with leading cultural institutions.

This year, U.S. and N.Y. premieres by contemporary international artists will be presented in seven venues across the city, among them, several major new works by leading choreographers and directors from France. In addition, French actress Jeanne Balibar will present an evening inspired by the pioneering work of Anne-Emmanuelle Demartini, Charlotte de Castelnau, and Emmanuelle Loyer. She will present an essay by each of these women, connecting their words with parallels in her own personal history to create an intimate and profound self-portrait of the actress.

Among the many performances, here are the projects who recieved the support of FACE Foundation and the Cultural Services of the French Embassy:
