Since its creation, the JCC have maintained deep ties with the International Organization of the Francophonie, whose member countries actively participate in global film creation. In light of developing and strengthening the historical ties between these countries, ‘ JCC and Francophonie’ section offers different activities that take place according to the following program:
A roundtable where Francophonie experts, actors and intellectuals will discuss the following issue: «The promotion and visibility of the film in the Francophone area: challenges and perspectives»;
- A selection of 7 recent francophone films that represent the cultural variety of the Francophone world will be screened as part of the section.
The «CFF and Francophonie» section will therefore aim to:
- Emphasize the synergy that has led the relations between the CFF and the Francophonie in its institutional and wide meanings;
- Underline the artistic, cultural and humanist dimensions which are reflected in the Francophone cinema thanks to this synergy.
- Reflect on the challenges and perspectives for the development of the French speaking film in a world dominated by the English-speaking culture.
