2018/2019 Tournées Film Festival Grantees

Four universities in Texas, Oklahoma and Arkansas have been awarded a Tournées Film Festival grant! Congratulations to Texas Lutheran University in Seguin, TX, the University of Oklahoma in Norman, OK, the University of Central Arkansas in Conway, AR and West Texas A & M University in Canyon, TX. Each university will receive a grant of $2,200 to cover the cost of screening six French films as part of a festival to be held on their campuses during the 2018/2019 academic year.

Tournées Film Festival is a program of the FACE Foundation, in partnership with the Cultural Services of the French Embassy, which aims to bring French cinema to American colleges and university campuses. The 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.
