The See the North program extends cooperation between UniFrance and Telefilm Canada

Within the framework of a partnership between Unifrance and Telefilm Canada, UniFrance will present the French film Parisienne as part of the Canadian film program See the North, which will descend on independent cinemas, film societies, and universities in the United States in 2016.

This presentation of a French film follows the inclusion of a Canadian film (Chorus by François Delisle) in this year's Young French Cinema program. The Young French Cinema Program, which was first initiated by UniFrance in 2015, aims to boost the circulation of eleven independent French films in many different movie screening venues around North America.

It is therefore only fitting that the Canadian equivalent of this program, the See the North series, which was instigated by Telefilm Canada and the Toronto International Film Festival (TIFF), will include a French film (Parisienne) as part of its program of eight titles.

"From Jean Renoir's The River to Céline Sciamma's Girlhood, French cinema has long excelled at stories of girls becoming women," explains TIFF's artistic director Cameron Bailey in favor of the selection of Danielle Arbid's film, which tells the story of a young Lebanese woman who arrives in Paris in the early 1990s hoping to find her place in the new world in which she finds herself.
