Festival Details

The mission of the Francophone Short Film Festival is to provide an opportunity for the voice and viewpoint of cinematographers and directors of Francophone countries to be exhibited on an international stage. The intended purpose is to expose the audience to the evolution of the French language, or how it has mixed with the local language, while viewing the rich cultural mosaic of the French-speaking countries and through the camera lens, the filmmakers’ expression of their experiences.
