Red River Theatres


Francophonie Day in Concord

There are more events after the 2:00pm celebration at the NH State House.

At 5:00pm at the the Red River Theater (11 S. Main St.), the Gilbert Foundation will award prizes and screen the winning videos for the Inaugural “Concours Vidéo de langue française.” This contest called upon high school students to produce a creative, original video responding to the prompt “Why should 21st Century Students Study French?” («Est-ce que les étudiants du 21me siècle ont besoin d’apprendre le français? »)

Following the Concours awards and video screenings, in collaboration with the NH Chapter of the American Association of Teachers of French, Le Centre de la francophonie des Amériques and the Délégation du Québec à Boston, join us for a special presentation of Un rêve américain (An American Dream). The film documents Damien Robitaille’s journey of discovery, as he traces French-Canadian heritage in the United States.

After the movie, there will be a question and answer session with the writer and producer Claude Godbout.

Check out the trailer (there will be English subtitles for our viewing):
