IN PARTNERSHIP WITH
CELEBRATING 13 YEARS OF EDUCATIONAL PROGRAM WITH ELMA
In 2020, COLCOA FRENCH FILM FESTIVAL will welcome its 29,000th student. 3,000 seats will be offered to students and teachers who want to attend the high school screenings, now a 5-day program,thanks to the support of ELMA.
“ELMA joined forces with COLCOA to create the High School screenings program because we believe exposure to foreign cinema at an early age develops a much-needed appreciation for diversity and multiculturalism. Movies that are not just entertaining but also make you think, discover new ideas, people, cultures and places. The success exceeded our expectations as the program, now in its 12th edition, continues to grow with about 3,000 students attending each year. 26,000+ students have attended over the last 11 years.”
