This year, the Rendez‐vous de la Francophonie (RVF) marks its 25th anniversary with the theme of celebration, and for the 18th year in a row, the National Film Board of Canada (NFB) is taking part in the festivities, offering a number of films that highlight “the music of French” —the unique sound and feel of the French language and its diverse manifestations.
The programs are available to audiences of all ages, Francophones and Francophiles alike, during Francophonie Month, from March 1 to 31.
We’re proud to present a selection of short films.
Invite your friends and family to join and enjoy a conversation together and follow the guiding questions for each program.
It’ll Make You Want to Sing! (43 min | Ages 14+)
This selection of musical films offers a rich overview of French songs in Canada. Through playful rhythms, great artists put their identities, their challenges and their victories into words. Haunting tunes guaranteed!
