NFB: RENDEZ-VOUS DE LA FRANCOPHONIE

MÉDIATHEQUE DE TORONTO - RENDEZ-VOUS DE LA FRANCOPHONIE
Please indulge me in promoting this great French event in Toronto!

FREE CINEMA PROGRAM! Films will be presented in French with English subtitles. Held On March 10 2010 starting at 6:30 PM, this event is free and not to be missed if you are interested in our diversified culture in Canada!

Pis nous autres dans tout ça? (So, Where Do We Fit In?) 2007, 24 min, directed by Andréanne Germain....What would happen if three huge Franco-Ontarian flags wandered over the Plains of Abraham in Quebec City during the St. Jean Baptiste celebrations? A young Ontario francophone, Andréanne Germain, goes in search of an answer.

Followed by: Le chœur d’une culture (Together in Harmony) 2009, 27 min, directed by Marie-France Guerette... The Chorale Saint-Jean from Edmonton is invited to take part in festivities organized for Quebec City’s 400th anniversary. Together in Harmony captures the choir’s unforgettable journey back to the motherland. Both poignant and charming, the film shows that French outside Quebec doesn’t necessarily have a bleak future.

The program is preceded by an animated short film:
Vive la rose, 2009, 6 min, directed by Bruce Alcock
