“The Triplets of Belleville”: A Cine-Concert Oct 19, 2017 1200 10th Ave. South, Birmingham, AL 35203


      The Cultural Services of the French Embassy in New York, the network of the Alliances Françaises in the United States, and the Institut français, are proud to present a new educational program : “Cineschool.” This Film and audiovisual program provides schools, Alliances Françaises and cultural institutions with a film catalogue and trilingual educational portfolios designed for children and teenagers from four to eighteen years old.

      The project is inspired by several Film and moving images educational programs already existing in France and is based on the success of Festinema Junior (insert hyperlink), a French film festival designed for children and created in 2014 by the Alliances Françaises of Porto Rico and New Orleans. After two successful first editions, the festival gradually expanded in the US territory through the Alliance Française network. If the first edition in March 2014, brought together 1,231 students in the cities of San Juan, Puerto Rico and New Orleans, the 4th edition brought together some 8,100 children and teenagers from 99 schools in fifteen cities in the United States. 

      The Cultural Services of the French Embassy wishes to broaden the availability of films aimed at young audiences and to offer the educational material developed with its support, to all schools and organizations within the United States.
