French-Canadian Cultural Festival
Ewha et le Canada en Francophonie
H.E. Marius Grinius, Canadian ambassador to Seoul

Sponsored by Canadian Embassy in Seoul and Québec Office in Seoul, and organized by the Association Coréenne d`Etudes Québécoises, French-Canadian Cultural Festival (Le Canada en Francophonie) will take place at Ewha Women's University from March 28 to March 29, 2007. Following the success of last year's festival at Korea University, this year's two-day event will be organized in conjunction with Ewha Women's University to celebrate its 50th anniversary, the Department of French Language.

While well acknowledged that Canada has two official languages — French and English — the characteristics and culture of its francophone regions are sometimes less well known. This event provides an unmatched opportunity to experience Canadian French culture in Seoul. H.E. Marius Grinius, ambassador of Canada will conduct a lecture on "Official Bilingualism and Official Multiculturalism" on March 28, 2007.

In addition to the ambassador's lecture, other lectures on "French Canadian Culture and Education" by professor Sylvain Landry, HEC Montreal University and on "Quebec Studies" by professor emeritus Kim, In-Whan, French language and literature, Ewha University are planned. During the two-day festival period, four Canadian francophone films, all showcasing the well-known experimental and artistic aspects of Canadian film will be screened.

The films of Léa Pool, a female director from Québec, were showcased at a special section of the 2003 Seoul Women's Film Festival. Her film, Emporte-moi(Set me free), will be screened along with Littoral (Wajdi Mouawad) which was shown at the 2005 Pusan International Film Festival. C.R.A.Z.Y (Jean-Claude Vallee) and CQ2 (Carole Laure)will also be presented.

The Canadian French Book Exhibition, furthermore, will showcase approximately 200 Canadian French books and introduce many of the unique aspects of Canadian French literature.
