French Club

Join the French Club

The French Club welcomes all those interested in speaking French and in learning about French and francophone cultures. Our director of language instruction in French, Kelly Kasper, serves as faculty director, assisted by Shane O'Bannon and Clara Miller-Broomfield. The aim of the French Club is to offer enrichment activities for current Indiana University French students, while also exposing the broader campus and Bloomington communities to aspects of French and francophone culture.

Films

The French Club offers a film series each semester, and this Spring we offer "L'Espoir et La Survie," an inspired lineup of animated films. Each one speaks to the need for and the power of hope in the face of human hardship aided by a variety of distinct, artfully executed styles of animation. Hope and survival or hope of survival is at the core of this series. Expect to walk away with a realistic, but hopeful take on issues suited for older audiences in French. But don't worry; English subtitles are always provide. All films will be shown in GA 0001, the Shreve Auditorium in the Global and International Studies Building.
