FIGSO awarded Tournées Festival Grant
Posted: December 3, 2012
We are pleased to announce that FIGSO (French and Italian Graduate Student Organization) was recently awarded a Tournées Festival grant through the French American Cultural Exchange program and in partnership with the French Embassy. This distinguished grant, offered to a select number of universities each year, provides significant funding for screening newly released French films for the public. Our department will be using this grant to host a French and Italian film festival in February 2013 that will be free and open to the public. This is an exciting opportunity for our department to increase awareness and passion for French and Italian culture. More details to come!
