The Embassy of France in the Philippines, in partnership with the Alliance Française de Manille and the Lycée Français de Manille, is pleased to inform you that the Francophonie festival will take place from March 12 to 19, 2016.

2016 will be a great year for the commemoration of the Francophonie in the Philippines as we are organizing concerts featuring the French beatboxer and poet, WAB, and the pop-rock group Pa-KO. They will perform on March 17 at the Alliance Française de Manille, March 18 at the De La Salle College of St. Benilde and March 19 at the Rizal Park (from 6:00 pm onwards). The concerts will be free of charge. This will be one of the highlights of our celebration of the Francophonie.

We are also organizing dance shows featuring the acrobat duo Chrysalis (Jordi L. Vidal): one in SM Aura Premier (Samsung Hall) on Saturday March 12 (2 performances: one at 10 am and another one at 5 pm) and one at the Lycée Français de Manille on Monday March 14 (performances for the pupils at 10 am and at 12:40 pm). These shows are also free of charge.

Moreover, we are continuing the annual activities of the Francophonie, particularly the Printemps des Poètes. The poet François Coudray will be reading his poems on Thursday March 17 from 5:30 pm at the Alliance Française. A poetry contest is also organized for the Filipino students. An awarding ceremony will take place on March 17 from 6:30 pm in Alliance. The winner will receive a 15-day, all-expense paid, linguistic trip to France. It will be followed by a cocktail organized by the Embassy of Canada (by invitation).

Finally, we are organizing a French dictation “Les timbrés de l’orthographe” on March 19 at 10 am in 3 different venues: Alliance Française de Manille, Lycée Français de Manille and University of the Philippines. To participate, kindly register by sending an email to: cbonnal@alliance.ph (for Alliance Française), contact@lfmanille.ph (for Lycée Français), linguistic.ambafrance.manille@gmail.com (for University of the Philippines).
