France-Brazil : a cultural season 2025

Following their meeting in Paris last June, Presidents Emmanuel Macron and Luiz Inácio Lula da Silva decided to organise a France-Brazil Season in 2025 to strengthen our bilateral relationship and our joint responses to contemporary political, social and ecological challenges. Multidisciplinary, cultural, social and committed, the Season will take place in France and then in Brazil from April to December 2025. For France, it will be implemented by the Institut français, with Anne Louyot as General Commissioner.

Since their creation in 1985, more than sixty Seasons have enabled France to dialogue with a hundred or so other countries, to showcase a wide range of cultures and forging lasting links between regions and peoples. 2025 will be the year of the reunion between Brazil and France, just twenty years after the first Brazilian Season in France, "Brazil, Brazils". 

This new cross Season will be built around three themes: the climate and the ecological transition, the diversity of societies and dialogue with Africa, democracy and fair globalisation, which will be the common thread in the development of a joint programme.

With a particular focus on young people and exchanges between professionals, the programme, built with civil society and cultural players, will combine global challenges with questions of human rights, diversity and equality. 


A call for projects for French programming in Brazil has been published. IMPORTANT INFORMATION: the closing date for the call for projects has been extended to Monday 1 July 2024-23:59 CET

The Institut français

As a key stakeholder in cultural policy outside France, the Institut français is entrusted with a public service mission and financed by state subsidy.

The Institut français, under the dual supervision of the Ministry of Europe and Foreign Affairs and the Ministry of Culture, conducts two fundamental missions:

  1. To promote French culture and language
  2. To strive for cultural diversity

To this end, it works closely with the French cultural network abroad, whose activities it aims to expand.
