For the new school year in September 2020, the Institut français is launching a new platform to promote film education in Europe, the European Film Factory, supported by the MEDIA sub-programme of the Creative Europe programme.

In the context of the current sanitary crisis, the Institut français has closed the doors of its Paris location since March 16th, in order to protect the health of its employees. From now on, all the members of staff are working remotely to best fulfill its public service missions, to support and accompany all of its partners, especially the French cultural network abroad.
In the current context of an international health crisis, the entire cultural network abroad is working to ensure the continuity of its services and missions. In particular, given the closure of many establishments, alternative solutions are being implemented every day to maintain the link with the public, offer educational continuity, and maintain actions related to cultural promotion, dissemination and cooperation.
With the aim of sharing the responses provided by the network more widely throughout the world, the Institut français proposes to list the initiatives developed to address this situation.
This first brief list will be completed quickly and regularly updated.
