Les Rendez-vous de la Francophonie

The Rendez-vous de la Francophonie (RVF) is a cross-Canada celebration of the French language, and one of the largest cultural events organized under the umbrella of the Journée internationale de la Francophonie, held annually on March 20. The NFB has been taking part in the RVF since 2006 through a series of free screenings in venues across the country, from coast to coast, from the Great Lakes to the Arctic, offering a programming lineup that changes from year to year.

This year, the NFB at RVF celebrates the music of French. To see the details of this program and to register, click here.
