Concours Cinérama Square

The “Cinérama” competition is organised by the Institut Français in India (IFI) with the participation of the network of Alliances Françaises in India. This competition is open to students of French in schools, universities and Alliances Françaises in India, in coordination with at least one of their French language teachers.

 The goal is to collectively produce a video of free form (clip, report, fiction, …) and to exchange the different perceptions around the theme of inclusiveness and equality between individuals.

This competition is organized on the occasion of the International Women’s Rights Day on March 8, 2022, and Francophonie month.  It aims to raise students’ awareness of equality, the fight against discrimination and to appreciate the cultural, linguistic differences of the Francophone world.

This competition will also help students to learn how to create a film using their creativity and show their expertise in using different digital tools (smartphone, tablet, camera, etc.)
