Patrons and Partners

Join the Amis du Festival

Created in 1992, the association Les Amis du Festival d'Automne à Paris brings together individuals, foundations and companies that accompany and support the Festival in its policy of creation and openness to the world.

Revealing works, taking risks, accompanying artists and raising public awareness are founding principles that the Friends association shares and encourages.

Each year, the Friends, Donors, Major Donors and Patrons of the Festival make a decisive contribution to the realization of ambitious and demanding programs. For 30 years, they have worked to shape the future of the Festival through their collective and faithful commitment.
