Since 2015, participating universities will now choose SIX FILMS:

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

For the 20th edition 2015-2016 of Tournées Film Festival, we are proud to offer a wide variety of films that represent the best of French cinema distributed in the U.S., from the popular to the experimental. Showcasing established and emerging talents, 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.

Please note the new application deadline of June 1st: More information on the new guidelines and application procedures and deadlines can be found on the newly updated Tournées Film Festival website.
