FRANCOPHONIE 2022

For more than half a billion francophones around the world, March marks the Mois de la Francophonie or Francophonie Month. This annual event is a celebration of the rich diversity of the French language and francophone cultures. Like every year, Alliance Française de Bombay will join forces with the Consulates of Quebec, Belgium, Canada, and France to bring you a series of exciting events and film screenings in honour of the occasion!

Keep an eye out on this space as we update the list of events which will be organised both ONLINE & ON-SITE this year within the framework of Mois de la Francophonie.
