Background

The French Institute of Cambodia (Institut français du Cambodge) opened its doors in 1990, initially under the name "Alliance française". For over 30 years, the French Institute has been the major operator in the cultural, artistic and academic cooperation between France and Cambodia. It promotes French literature, movies and language, as well as ideas and knowledge. Under this two-fold mission, the French Institute offers a diverse cultural program which places a great importance on scientific, technical, and professional topics. It offers cultural events (exhibitions, shows, concerts, etc.), conferences, and debates all year long as well as movie screenings in French with English or Khmer subtitles. The café-restaurant Le Bistrot gives the opportunity to enjoy and discover the French tableware and cooking. Every year, about 10,000 students choose to learn French at the French Institute’s Language Center. The courses being offered are aimed at meeting the training demands of various groups such as companies, young professionals, and international organizations. It can be adapted to specific needs or language skills: preparation to go in France to study, work in a French-speaking company, work with French clients, or to improve one’s French language skills. The Media Library essentially provides a window to modern France. It offers more than 25,000 multimedia documents (books, DVDs, and ebooks). The digital library “Culturethèque” provides Media Library members a new opportunity to access the best French media online on their computers, tablets, or smartphones.

Along with the main representation of the French Institute in Phnom Penh, another annex shares the same goals and objectives in Battambang.
