French Haute Cuisine

By Didier Allouch, host of Rendez-vous d'Amérique

My dear francophiles, francovorous and francophageous friends, let me first wish you the best for 2019… Health, fortune, and love for you all the ones you love, of course, but also the best in cinema, theatre, music, art, food, the best in culture in many forms. And if it has the slightest French accent, it will be in Rendez-Vous d’Amérique. Let’s start the New Year by talking about one of my favorite subjects: food…

Best of the year

By Didier Allouch, host of Rendez-vous d'Amérique

My dear francophiles, francovorous and francophageous friends, if I heard it right during the 3,259 hours I spent in the different LA malls trying to find the right present for the right people (yeah, I’m this kind of guy who still prefers spending five hours looking for a parking spot at The Grove than ordering gifts on the net.

My dear friends, francophiles, francovorous and francophageous, I have a confession to make. Since the beginning of the show, 9 years ago, I have been a huge fan of The Walking Dead. Yes, I have no shame in that I’ve been an adult for a while now but I have never missed one episode...

Diverse culture in the Francophone world

By Didier Allouch, host of Rendez-vous d'Amérique

In this week's episode of Rendez-Vous d’Amérique, we have a long story about Machine de Cirque, a circus company from Quebec playing on Broadway.

Rendez-Vous d'Amérique: 8 years already

By Didier Allouch, host of Rendez-vous d'Amérique

8 years and 225 episodes ago, Rendez-vous d’Amérique started its course on TV5MONDE’s USA program lineup. I remember that in the first episode, the big story was about the Jazzfest in New Orleans. Since then, we came back a lot to Louisiana. We also shot stories in Pittsburgh, Portland, Philadelphia, Boston, Austin, New York, Lewiston, San Francisco, Denver, Minneapolis, Las Vegas, Washington, Los Angeles, and all over America. If there were any francophone cultural events in the US, we were there…

The Toronto International Film Festival

The Toronto International Film Festival has become essential for world cinema today. Tens of thousands of fans come here every second week of September to participate to the premiere of the fall movies.
