20th Anniversary Tournées Film Festival Recipients
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 college and university campuses.
Founded in 1995, Tournées Film Festival is celebrating its 20th Anniversary in 2015! Since its debut, the program has partnered with over 450 universities, reaching an audience of over 500,000 students and community members all across the United States.
