Les Rendez-vous de la Francophonie

The NFB has been taking part in the annual Rendez-vous de la Francophonie (RVF) since 2006. The RVF is one of the major cultural events held in conjunction with International Francophonie Day, which is celebrated every year on March 20. The NFB participates in the RVF by offering community groups, organizations, schools and institutions free in-person or online screenings of NFB-curated film programs throughout the month of March.

How do I organize a virtual or in-person screening? 

Step 1. Choose one or more of the programs in the current year’s offer. To view the programs available, please click here.

Step 2. Fill out the online request form to register (if you encounter difficulties, pdf form is available). We can supply an electronic file (.mp4 or .mov) or ship a physical copy (projection-quality DVD) for screenings in your library. For virtual screenings, we can provide a hyperlink.

Step 3. Prior to your event, use your screening equipment to test the film format delivered to you (digitally or by mail).
