One of the new missions entrusted to the Institut français on its creation was to affirm the European dimension of France's cultural action abroad.
Our objectives are as follows:
- To make the Institut français a visible, recognised and influential player on the European scene by increasing its partnerships and participation in European initiatives;
- To develop the Institut's capacity to implement projects co-financed by the European Union by working to take greater account of European policies and objectives in our actions;
- To raise the Network's and our partners' awareness of European priorities and policies on the one hand, but also of the cross-disciplinary issues supported by European institutions (Sustainable Development Goals, Culture and Development, social impact of projects, Green Pact for Europe, etc.).
As part of the Les Cinémas du Monde pavilion, La Fabrique’s participants from Africa, Latin America, Asia, Eastern Europe and the Middle East will be able to meet their patron as well as the French and foreign film professionals present for the Festival’s Marché du Film.
Chosen to represent France at the 59th Venice International Art Biennale in 2022 (23 April - 27 November 2022), Zineb Sedira transforms the French Pavilion, operated by the Institut français, into a film installation entitled Dreams Have No Titles.

The Institut français is pleased to announce the list of the first artisans selected for the program “NAFAS, 100 résidences d’artistes libanais en France”, implemented with the support of GALOP (exclusive distributor of Hermès in Lebanon) and the collaboration of the Institut français du Liban.
The Institut français is adopting a new organisational structure in order to be more in line with its priorities and more transparent for its partners. This new organisation chart is being put in place at a time when the public establishment in charge of France's external cultural action is celebrating its 100th anniversary.
