City Screen York will be collaborating with L’Alliance Française de York to bring you screenings of ten favourite French films showing throughout 2014 to celebrate the latter’s 20th anniversary. The series includes Daniel Auteuil’s modern adaptations of Marcel Pagnol’s masterpieces ‘Marius’ and ‘Fanny’ as matinées in January and February, and evening performances of ‘La Vie En Rose’ (the story of Édith Piaf) and the much-loved ‘Princess of Montpensier’, as well as great independent releases like ‘Micmacs’ and ‘Little White Lies’.

Established in 1883 in Paris, the Alliance Française was the first organisation to teach French around the world.  Today it is the largest collection of French teaching associations with over 1,000 schools in 138 countries. The York branch was established in 1994 by David Rowland, and is a non-profit, self-financed charitable organisation, part of a well-established UK network of 10 sister Alliances and about 50 French clubs.  Its aim is to promote and widen access to French language and culture and to encourage a friendly dialogue between cultures through education (languages courses, workshops run by native French speakers) and cultural and social exchanges.

The Alliance Française de York looks forward to welcoming you at City Screen for each of these films.
