The Albertine Cinémathèque film festival partners with the Franco-American Cultural Fund to showcase French and Francophone cinema to American Colleges and University campuses. A goal of the funding agency is to promote French-American Cultural Exchange (FACE) in Education and the Arts. The festival reflects the diversity and the richness of French and Francophone cinema through various genres. Among other things, the goal for the film festival at Missouri State University in Spring 2022 is to expose students to different aspects of French and Francophone culture, help them enhance their socio-historical, cultural and linguistic knowledge and also to promote awareness and appreciation for diversity through films—by including fiction, documentary, repertory (performances of ballet, plays, operas) and animation.
