French Film Club

Enjoy online discussions about French films!

Would you like to discover the best of Francophone and French cinema and share your thoughts on the films you watch?

Watch the film we have specially selected before the meeting on the free TV5MONDEplus platform (available with French and English subtitles).

Then join us on Zoom on the Film Club meeting date for an online presentation and discussion led by a member of our team.

The French Film Club is open to all - you do not have to be enrolled on a class with us - and there is no obligation to attend all sessions. All presentations and discussions are in French, so an intermediate level is recommended.

Unless otherwise indicated, all Alliance Française de Manchester cultural events are open and accessible to all. They are public events and under 18s remain under the responsiblity of their parent/guardian at all times.

Do not forget to book your space in time to receive the link!
