The Festival du film canadien de Dieppe is celebrating its 10th anniversary! From March 23 to 26, discover films from across Canada. This is a great opportunity to highlight through culture the strong ties and deep relationship between the city of Dieppe and Canada. The Canadian Cultural Centre has been a partner of this festival since its creation.
Unique in Europe, this festival represents the diversity of English and French Canadian cinema beyond our borders. Each year, it presents a wide range of feature films never before seen in France, reflecting the vitality of current Canadian film production.
