World cinema, co-productions, identity: the topic of a round table hosted by the Alliance Française in Toronto

An event running parallel to TIFF, this round table debate entitled "Does cinema still have a national identity?" will be held by the Alliance Française in Toronto on September 12 at 2:00 p.m., led by UniFrance films deputy director Frédéric Bereyziat.

For this event, the Alliance Française will welcome the following participants:

Michèle Ray Gavras from KG Productions, attending TIFF for the film Let Them Come, directed by Salem Brahimi (Algeria, France)

Charles Gillibert from CG Cinéma, attending TIFF for the film Mustang by Deniz Gamze Ergüven (Turkey, France, Germany, Qatar)

Didier Costet from Swift, attending TIFF for The Endless River by Oliver Hermanus (South Africa, France)

The round table will be hosted by Frédéric Bereyziat, UniFrance' deputy director and former director of European and international affairs at the CNC. Discussions will focus on cinema and the notion of identity, in light of the fact that many films nowadays are collaborations between producers from different countries, resulting in productions that are international, featuring actors from across the globe. In this context, can we still speak about French, Italian, or German cinema in the same way as we did in the past, or should we now speak about European cinema, or world cinema?

Contact details and access information are available on the Alliance Française Toronto website.
