Cinéfranco, a charitable organization, through the use of film art media as a tool for learning, for discovery and entertainment, aims at developing the mutual understanding and awareness of a common heritage rooted in the use of the French language and the continuous fulfillment of historical and cultural values of francophone communities in minority settings.
The Festival’s Main Program is the most important international francophone film festivals in English Canada. It is comprised of up to 40 francophone films and brings together thousands of fans. The films reflect the richness and diversity of filmmakers from Canada, France, Belgium, Switzerland, Algeria, Morocco. Tunisia, Senegal and other countries.
The goal of this program is to showcase films rarely seen or not distributed in Toronto cinemas. Considering that fewer and fewer films are being released in theatres, Cinéfranco provides an essential platform to foster the appreciation of francophone films. Therefore, Cinéfranco gives the unique opportunity for francophone film lovers to experience the films on a big screen, and for filmmakers to meet their audiences.
