World Cinema from la Francophonie
Les écrans de la francophonie du monde
Presented in Vancouver by the Pacific Cinémathèque and the Consulate General of France, DiverCiné is a cooperation between the Embassy of France in Canada and Canadian Heritage / Patrimoine canadien. It is designed to celebrate and promote la Francophonie, the international community of countries and governments that use French as a common language; express the identities, imaginings, and cultures of the French-speaking world in all their diversity; and showcase the range and abundance of film production in the francophone nations of the world. DiverCiné programming gives prominence to films selected for major international festivals, and provides Canadian audiences with an opportunity to see exceptional films that, in many cases, they would otherwise not be able to see.
Our 2012 program is made up of acclaimed features from Africa, Europe, and Canada, and includes a special all-ages matinee screening of a new animated film from France.
