14th DiverCiné Film Festival
March 4, 2016 until March 13, 2016


Maïmouna N'Diaye
Lead actress Maïmouna N'Diaye joins us in Ottawa on March 4th for a post-film discussion at the presentation of Eye of the Storm!
DiverCiné highlights the cultures of La Francophonie in all their diversity. Through its programming, this cultural presentation gives prominence to films selected for major international festivals and gives Canadian audiences an opportunity to see first-rate movies created by filmmakers from various countries of the francophone sphere that are rarely screened in Canada. DiverCiné celebrates the creativity of La Francophonie in Canada and around the world.

DiverCiné is organized by the Embassy of France in Canada, the Department of Canadian Heritage and the Canadian Film Institute, in partnership with ByTowne Cinema and The Cinematheque.
