Tournées Film Festival 2018-2019 on Southern California Campuses

The FACE (French American Cultural Exchange) Foundation presents, in partnership with the Cultural Services of the French Embassy and the Franco-American Cultural Fund, the Tournées Film Festival, which aims to bring French cinema to American colleges and university campuses. Our objective in providing nearly $200,000 in Tournées Film Festival grants every year is to fund festival endeavors that can eventually become permanent and self-sustaining.

Founded in 1995, this year in its 23rd season, Tournées Film Festival has partnered with over 600 universities, reaching an audience of over half a million students and community members all across the United States. Tournées Film Festival reflects the diversity and the richness of French cinema through various genres — fiction, documentary, animation and repertory films — giving participants the opportunity to expand their programming and for audiences to experience French cinema through a wider lens.

MiraCosta College in Oceanside, California Institute of the Arts in Valencia, Pierce College in Woodland Hills, and San Diego State University in San Diego are among the 61 universities and community colleges selected to receive a Tournées Film Festival grant.

Upcoming Tournées Film Festival events will be happening at CalArts on Fri, Mar 8, San Diego State University from Thur, Mar 7 – Sat, Mar 16 and at MiraCosta College from Tues, Apr 9 – Fri, Apr 26.

Pierce College had their Festival from Thurs, Nov. 1 – Thurs, Nov. 8, 2018. Find their full selection of screenings here
