Cuba – Launch of the Month of French Culture (April 26 – May 31, 2016)


One year after President Hollande’s visit, the Month of French Culture was launched yesterday in Havana.

During this festival, the Cuban public will have the opportunity to discover numerous French artists and intellectuals through cultural events in all fields: the first International Design Biennial in Havana, Karl Lagerfeld and Jean Michel Marchetti photography exhibitions, concerts and contemporary dance workshops. The French Film Festival in Havana will also take place from April 29, and will notably be attended by directors Jean Becker and Christophe Barratier.

This event marks a new stage in the strengthening of our bilateral relations following Raúl Castro’s state visit to France in February.
