IE French Film Festival

IE French Film Festival

September 30th, 2022

Today, the IE Arts & Humanities Division launched the IE French Film Festival in collaboration with the Alliance Française of Madrid.

This first part of the festival was opened by Catalina Tejero, Vice Dean of the Arts & Humanities Division and by Julián Ocaña, Director of the Alliance Française of Madrid.

Students enjoyed a screening of the film De nos frères blessés (Faithful) by director Hélier Cisterne.  Following the film, we enjoyed a panel discussing the complex history of Algeria as a French colony as well as artistic film direction moderated by Sergio Sempere of the student-led Film & TV Industry Club.  The panel members included Celia de Anca, Director of the Center for Diversity in Global Management at IE, Regina Chatruch del Río, Arabic Philologist and Professor at IE, and Alain Lefebvre, cultural manager and audiovisual producer and French professor at IE.

Thank you to IE Campus Life and the IE Language Center for your support!

The second edition of the French Film Festival will take place on October 24th at 17:00 in the IE Tower during IE Sustainability Week.  More details and register for your spot HERE.
