The Tournées Festival

leave a comment »

The Tournées Festival was conceived to encourage schools to begin their own self-sustaining French film festivals. Since its inception, the program has partnered with hundreds of universities and made it possible for more than 300,000 students to discover French-language films. The Tournées Festival distributes over $200,000 in grants annually.

We are delighted to be able to propose a varied selection of films, a wide array of genres, many French co-productions, and films by directors ranging from unique new voices to established figures. We hope you will be inspired by the selection of films and we look forward to receiving your application. We would like to invite you to apply for a grant from The Tournées Festival, a program of FACE, designed to help bring contemporary French cinema to your college or university campus.

Fused – French-US Exchange in Dance

leave a comment »

The French-US Exchange in Dance program, known as FUSED, melds the French and American dance communities by fostering dialogue and exchange, consolidating professional relationships and spawning choreographic innovation. This multi-year program introduces choreographers and performers whose works have not yet – or rarely – been seen in the partner country.

The FUSED program offers grants to U.S. and French non-profit presenting institutions willing to pledge to a new bilateral dance project with possibilities for residencies, commissions, and/or touring the work of at least one choreographer/performer from the partner country. Co-productions between presenters are encouraged
