As in previous years, our popular French market will be held inside the cinema before the films. There will be a variety of stalls including books and DVDs from Sydney Abbey’s Bookshop, French Cable TV CanalSat Australie and information tables for the Alliance Française de Newcastle, Terre de Langue and French Session in Burgundy for those who are interested in the French language.

A film festival opening night is always a special moment, so to celebrate, a free glass of bubbles and hors-d’oeuvres will be served, accompanied by live music. In addition to the usual stalls, there will be a light dinner available to purchase from the trendy French wine bar Le Passe-Temps and delicious patisseries from chef Christian Breton. Lucky door prizes will be drawn before the movie so make sure to arrive early!

To close the festival, an Afternoon Tea will be served following a good laugh at our final movie What’s in a Name?
