The Institut français, talent exporter
The Institut français promotes French language and culture internationally, in an ongoing dialogue with foreign cultures. To this end, it relies on the largest cultural diplomatic network in the world, made up of the Instituts françaises, Alliances Françaises and the cultural services of embassies and consulates.
Discover the extent of this network on this site using our map of French culture worldwide.
Bringing Cultures to Life
“Bringing Cultures to Life", the slogan of the Institut français, reflects our desire to share France’s extraordinary artistic, cultural and linguistic creativity with you. We invite you to meet authors, discover works and spot talent. Be curious and don’t hesitate to join us as we travel from France to Japan via Romania, from dance to cinema, from digital creation to comic books and beyond.
