A New French Cinema Program On American Campuses

    We are thrilled to introduce our new French Cinema program on Campus: ALBERTINE CINEMATHEQUE.

    ALBERTINE CINEMATHEQUE is a program of Villa Albertine and FACE Foundation, which aims to present recently released high profile independent French films on US campuses. By introducing college students to French films through their varied forms, our program is nurturing an enduring love for a very diverse and evolving cinema.

    All faculty members of US universities or colleges can join our program for free and take advantage of our broad offering, of which our long-standing grant program, Tournées Film Festival, is now part. Each year, our program centers around a curated Film Selection highlighting some of the most innovative French films released in the US. To complete this year’s selection, Albertine Cinémathèque is delighted to present three films curated by highly praised French filmmaker, Alice Diop

    Albertine Cinémathèque's members can enjoy our benefits at their own pace: choose a few films for one-off events, organize a full festival on campus and apply for our Festival Grant, access our extensive Educational Resources containing interviews with filmmakers to enhance discussions in the classroom, or simply invite their students to attend our free virtual Film Club screenings followed by Q&As with acclaimed French directors.

    Whichever way they choose, our members are championing French Cinema and inspiring the younger generation to be inquisitive about the world around them.  

    Applications for the FESTIVAL GRANT close on Friday, October 22.


    This program is made possible with the generous support of the CNC (Centre National du Cinéma et de l'image animée) and the FONDS CULTUREL FRANCO-AMERICAIN
