It includes more than 56 members and about 14 observer countries, 870 millions people in all 5 continents in total.

The name of the festival, 法话影展, was created to underline that French is the main or second language of the countries showcasing their films.

A competition is organised on http://ent.cri.cn during the whole festival. The audience can vote on line for the best film of the festival. The best film will be shown one more time on March 29, at the French Cultural center.
