The University of Melbourne at the French Film Festival

This year, four of our French Department academics at the University of Melbourne are running Q&As at the Alliance Française French Film Festival. Make sure to snap up your tickets to these special events, which feature a film screening, a brief lecture and the opportunity to ask questions and discuss the film as a group.
