The Alliance Francaise of Greenwich, CT, in partnership with The Avon Theatre in Stamford, CT, will celebrate La Francophonie with a selection of recent award-winning French language short films on March 8 at 6:30 p.m.

Professor Binita Mehta, Ph.D, will join a post-film panel discussion with Ronnie Scharfman, Professor Emerita of French & Literature at SUNY Purchase College, Michelle Stewart, Ph.D, Professor of Cinema Studies at SUNY Purchase College and Emily Wilson, a filmmaker who graduated from the film Conservatory at SUNY Purchase College.

La Francophonie is always celebrated in the month of March. French language and cultural festivities are held annually worldwide to commemorate the founding of La Francophonie (the French-­speaking world) and to coincide with the International Day of La Francophonie on March 20.
