LA CARTE DE TENDRE : French Language Shorts . Reelout is thrilled to partner with the Centre Cultural Frontenac each and every year to present a special french language program at the festival. This year, some of our shorts are a little more “explicit” than other years so unfortunately for our younger audiences, this program is for 18 years and over.
