10th DiverCiné Film Festival: World Cinema from La Francophonie
March 2, 2012 until March 11, 2012

The goal of DiverCiné – World Cinema from La Francophonie is to express the identities, imaginings and cultures of the French-speaking world in all its diversity. Its programming gives prominence to films selected for major international festivals and gives Canadian audiences an opportunity to see first-rate movies created by filmmakers from a variety of the world’s French-speaking countries that are rarely screened in Canada. DiverCiné is a cultural event that celebrates the creativity of La Francophonie in Canada and worldwide.

Organized by the Embassy of France to Canada and the Department of Canadian Heritage, in partnership with the Canadian Film Institute and the ByTowne Cinema.
