The Tournées Film Festival

January 27, 2014

Carleton College hosts The Tournées Festival, a festival of new French films, February 4-18, 2014. Five French films will be shown at Carleton's Weitz Center Cinema to celebrate French cinema and culture. The festival is open to the public.

Carleton is one of 30 colleges and universities nationwide selected to receive a grant to participate in this year’s Tournées Festival. The festival is a program of FACE (French American Cultural Exchange), in partnership with the Cultural Services of the French Embassy. The program distributes close to $200,000 in grants annually to encourage colleges and universities to begin their own self-sustaining French film festivals.

Now in its 18th year, The Tournées Festival offers a wide variety of films that represent the best of contemporary French cinema. The films span generational and geographic borders, offer a range of genres and subjects, and showcase innovations in both style and storytelling.
