Due to the COVID-19 outbreak that led many universities to close their campus in the 2020 Spring, the call for application for the 2020-2021 season has been moved: it will open on August 17, 2020 until October 2nd, 2020.
This was decided to give more time to professors and universities to put together their application.

For universities that have postponed their 2020 festival to the Fall, you will be eligible to apply for a 2021 Tournées Film Festival grant. You will be required to submit your post-screening form by December 31, 2020.
For universities that have already hosted their festival, the deadline to submit your post-screening is June 30, 2020.
Tournées Film Festival is a program which aims to bring French cinema to American colleges and university campuses. Our objective in providing nearly $200,000 in Tournées Film Festival grants every year is to fund festival endeavors that can eventually become permanent and self-sustaining.
Founded in 1995, this year in its 24th season, Tournées Film Festival has partnered with over 650 universities, reaching an audience of over half a million students and community members all across the United States.
Tournées Film Festival reflects the diversity and the richness of French cinema through various genres—fiction, documentary, animation and repertory films—giving participants the opportunity to expand their programming and for audiences to experience French cinema through a wider lens.
We are fortunate to partner again with the Franco-American Cultural Fund, whose support makes the addition of the Classics Selection and the corresponding increase in the Tournées Film Festival grant award possible.
