Participation of the French Ambassador in KIFF
On February 15th, 2016, Ambassador of France, Mr Yves Carmona, participated in the opening ceremony of the Kathmandu International Festival (KIFF) where a French movie, “la French” will be shown on the 16th. In his introductory remarks, he reminded the importance France attaches to the freedom of expression and the right for every nation to express its identity, as expressed by the UNESCO Convention of 2005 on cultural diversity. He also paid tribute to the quality of a recent Nepali movie currently programmed in French theaters, “Kalo Pothi”. Alliance Française de Katmandou is also a powerful instrument of cultural and linguistic diversity in Nepal.
