The Documentary Film Month : more than 35 countries participating in 2016

Partner of the Documentary Film Month, the Institut français is going international, from November 1 to 30, 2016, with this event organized in France by Images en Bibliothèques.
For the public and professionals alike, Documentary Film Month will be inaugurated in Paris on October 25 by the BPI (Public Information Library) at the Pompidou Center, where the film, Dernières nouvelles du cosmos by Julie Bertuccelli will be screened in the filmmaker’s presence.
The Institut français promotes the Documentary Film Month abroad by offering to its French Cultural Network in the world and to its partners three theme-based programs showing the best there is to offer in recent production and young creation in the documentary genre (trials, first films by young filmmakers and recent documentaries out in theaters or scheduled for festivals).
For one month, more than 35 countries will take part in the event with the help of the Instituts français, Alliances Françaises and a host of partners and festivals.
