Institut français


For more than 50 years, the Institut français München has been promoting francophone culture in all shapes and sizes. Located near the university in the former Palais Seyssel d’Aix, the Institute, which is run by the French embassy, hosts readings, exhibitions, conferences, film screenings, and much more, making it an integral part of the arts and culture scene in Munich and Bavaria. The Institute also offers French courses at all levels and for all ages, and it houses a media library in which more than 26,000 books, films, and CDs in French are waiting to be discovered.

France is known as the birthplace of cinema, and the French are indeed cinephiles. FILMFEST MÜNCHEN will be turning the spotlight on the Institut français München! We are delighted to be a partner again this year and to be able to promote and support French and French-language films. This edition of the film festival will undoubtedly be a very special one.
