International Festival of Language and Culture 2016


Date posted: February 20, 2016

IFLC is organizing the 15th annual language and culture festival on April 28, 2016 at DAR Constitutional Hall.

At a time when one might feel discouraged, distressed or hopeless amid news of violence, conflict and war, the International Festival of Language and Culture (IFLC) sprouts seeds of hope, in celebration of rich diversity and intercultural dialogue, with its 15th annual language and culture festival, “Beautiful Colors of the World.”

The IFLC has been hosting its language and culture festival for the past 14 years, showcasing both the rich multicultural diversity of our world, as well as the boundless and inspiring talent of our youth. The IFLC draws participants from over 160 countries across the globe, with over 1000 student performers each year at numerous regional events worldwide. In its 15th year, Washington DC, the Nation’s Capital, will be co-hosting, for the second time, this international event.

The IFLC expects to draw more than 100 young performers from over 15 countries, including Albania, Australia, Bulgaria, France, Germany, India, Paraguay, Romania, South Africa, Venezuela and the United States, to this year’s festival in Washington DC to exhibit their cultural traditions through spoken word, song and dance, in an expression of friendship, and hope for the future.

A great friend of mine, Bergen County Sheriff Michael Saudino, was there, too. He has been attending the PII’s iftar dinners for three years. He decided to fast that day for the first time in his life to experience what fasting is really like in the Islamic way.
