To this end the association holds an annual awards ceremony televised on TV5 monde in rotating cities of the francophone world — the first three ceremo- nies were held in Dakar, Paris and Abidjan — accompanied by screenings of the films nominated for awards.
Another aim is to provide funding on a competitive basis to support local film projects in the nation hosting the award. For example, Transylvania , France by Tony Gatlif, a major transnational French director, might not be included because while made and set in Romania, the international troupe of actors primarily converse in English.
The narrative of this multilocal film with dialogue in English, French, Italian and Wolof criss-crosses between Dakar, New York, and Turin, in the process demonstrating that the post- colonial axis France—Senegal in this case is no longer the sole or even the primary trajectory for French speakers.

This is something that most of the characters, actors, and directors under consideration in this volume are likely to grapple with. Case studies in the following chapters involve speakers of French from around the world, including Quebec, Africa and Europe, who communicate with other francophones but also sometimes fail to make themselves understood due to differences within the French lan- guage.
A number of the films covered involve lateral connections between different places and different accents from the French-speaking world. Chouf, funded by the CNC, expresses this diversity with its Arabic title tran- scribed into Latin characters and is a still too rare example of diversity in French cinema. Yet if we believe that this is a good starting point, it is not enough.
The two or more interlocutors must forge some sort of connection via a common marginal or alternative position or a shared ethic. We will return to this idea in the following section.

Instead, its components are protean and interchangeable.
Similar, if more modest, systems of support exist in Switzerland and Luxembourg. The Quebec film industry, based in Montreal, is strong and self- sufficient, despite its difficulties with some exceptions penetrating the francophone film market outside of its borders see Chapter 9 for further details.
