The International Francophone Theater Commission (Commission internationale du théâtre francophone-CITF) offers funding to theater coproduction projects involving three artistic partners (including at least two theater companies) from three different French-language countries on at least two continents.
The next deadline for submitting an application for the CITF program is May 15, 2012.
Artists and companies from Africa, the Americas, Europe, and the Middle East are all invited to participate in the CITF program. To date nearly 200 projects have received support, giving artists the opportunity to work together to develop and produce works of theater, to explore and enrich their approach to art, to discover other French-speaking cultures, and to reach new audiences. This program is also a boon to the Convention on the Protection and Promotion of the Diversity of Cultural Expressions with its promotion of projects involving international cooperation (coproductions) in the field of theater.
The registration form and program details are available on the CITF website.
Created in 1987, the International Francophone Theater Commission supports multilateral projects for the creation and distribution of works of theater. It is made up of government representatives and experts from the theater milieu.
