The UWM French Program is most grateful to the Albertine Cinémathèque, a program of FACE Foundation and Villa Albertine, with support from the CNC (Centre National du Cinéma), and SACEM/Fonds Culturel Franco-Américain.

We extend our profound appreciation to the Quebec Government Office in Chicago for its continued support.

We value the community sponsorship of the Alliance Française of Milwaukee, the Milwaukee French Immersion School, and SWAAF (Southeast Wisconsin Academic Alliance in French).

The film Simone le voyage du siècle is in memory of Nicole Darmon Chandler, a former president of the Alliance française de Milwaukee.

Our thanks go to HOME & the Lynden Sculpture Garden for their renewed support.

We also thank our many UWM co-sponsors, past and present: Student Involvement, Union Cinema, the Department of Global Studies, the Master of Arts in Language, Literature, and Translation (MALLT), the Film Studies Program, the Department of Dance, the Department of Women’s & Gender Studies, the Department of African and African Diaspora Studies, the Department of History, the Department of Film, Video, Animation, and New Genres, the Center for International Education’s U.S. Department of Education Title VI NRC Grant, the College of Letters and Science, the UWM OSHER French Class in honor of Professors Gabrielle Verdier and Jim Mileham, as well as the Center for Latin American and Caribbean Studies (CLACS), the Sam & Helen Stahl Center for Jewish Studies and the Institute of World Affairs.

We extend a special note of gratitude to Professor Martine Meyer (1929-2013) and Professor Emerita Gabrielle Verdier for their vision in establishing the UWM Festival of Films in French.
