Get your French on!
There will be a variety of stalls including French and English books, CDs and DVDs from Sydney's Abbey’s Bookshop*, bags & purses by La Petite Marie, skincare and perfumes from L'Occitane en Provence, plus information tables to help you plan your next trip to Paris and the Brittany region with The French Connection, and of course the Alliance Française de Newcastle for those who are interested in the French language and events in Newcastle!
Lucky door prizes!
A Film Festival opening night is always a special moment, so to celebrate, lucky door prizes will be drawn before the film on Friday night. We have goodies from wine experts Wine Selectors, bookshops Abbeys and Harry Hartog and movie tickets from the Alliance Française de Newcastle and Event Cinemas so make sure to arrive early!
* Abbeys Bookshop will be here all weekend! Their stall will be open from Friday night until Sunday afternoon before each movie screening.
