UNI-Presse’s mission is to promote and encourage French Language and culture throughout the world. We are proud to have the French Ministry of Foreign Affairs as our principal partner in our activities. We mostly work through the network of cultural and educational institutes outside France, recognized by the government: French high schools and other educational institutes, cultural centers, Alliance Français, and research institutes.
The « Institut Français » is a public institution which mission is to promote France’s external cultural action in artistic exchanges (live entertainment, visual arts, architecture etc.), so as the French language, knowledge and ideas.
The BIEF (Bureau International de l’Édition Française) provides an essential service to professionals in book publishing by facilitating publishers’ projects to develop the export, rights sales and acquisitions, and international partnerships. The action is organized around three main goals : a showcase Bureau International de l’Edition Française for French publishing at book fairs throughout the world, scrutiny and analysis of international markets, connecting publishers all over the world through professional exchanges.
The CLEMI (Centre for Liaison between Teaching and Information Media) is part of the French Ministry of Education. It was created in 1983 with the mission of “promoting especially by means of training activities, the multiple use of news media in teaching with the aim of encouraging a better understanding of the world by pupils while simultaneously developing critical understanding.” (Decree of April 1993). To achieve this mission, the Clemi offers training sessions, educational programmes and events, opportunities of exchange and networking, and pedagogical publications.
TV5MONDE, the world’s top French television network, is a space for open and pluralist expression. It is a general interest network, with a wide variety of programming that ranges across films, fiction, documentaries, sport, including its own productions of news and other original and previously unscreened programmes. To strengthen its position as the number two televsion network in the world, it is now using Internet as another way to make its broadcast materials available. In fact, TV5.org is already one of the world’s top French-speaking internet sites.
The Accueils Français et Francophones can be found in 160 towns and cities in 76 countries. They are staffed by volunteers who share their experience and savoir-faire, and above all their knowledge of the local area. The Accueils are designed for French and French-speaking expatriates. They offer help to new arrivals and their families, providing useful advice and information, as well as proposing various activities and opportunities to discover their new “home”. They serve as centres for spreading and promoting French language and culture.
