TORONTO - Films of the French-speaking world

This season, the cultural service of the Consulate General of France in Toronto presents a series of films of the French-speaking world at the Alliance française.

Come travel through the French-speaking world through five feature films. From Algeria to Morocco, from Rwanda to Haïti, five filmmakers share their view of the world that surrounds them. More than just an invitation to travel, this series is an ode to the plurality of cinema and the diversity of the world.

The Pierre and Tana Matisse Foundation Collection brings drawings of Matisse to the remarkable Audain Art Museum in Whistler for an important international exhibition.
