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.

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.
