For a fourth year in a row, the Conseil de développement économique des municipalités bilingues du Manitoba (CDEM), in partnership with Cinémental and the Alliance Française du Manitoba, presents Cinéma sous les étoiles (Movies Under the Stars). Cinéma sous les étoiles offers Manitoba audiences free outdoor screenings of French-language films with English subtitles, this year from June 2 to August 25. We are grateful for the support of our partners, without whose help the event could not take place: the St. Boniface Cathedral, la Société de la Francophonie Manitobaine, L’Institut français, Radio-Canada, La Liberté and Envol 91 FM, and Heritage Canada funding support.
