On 31st May, Bangkok Post wrote "Adieu, dear Lido" and now it is indeed time to say adieu (from Old Frenchadieu(“to God”) said to wish a final farewell). But it is not time to say goodbye to independent and non-hollywood movies !
Partnering with various cinema theaters (from big multiplexes to independent movie theaters) we aim to bring the best French movies in Bangkok. Here is what we have planned for the following weeks and months.
FRENCH DOC NIGHT at Doc club theater
"Speak Up" is the first film of "French Doc Night", special program from French Embassy and Doc Club theater which will premiere on every 2nd Friday and be continued throughout the month. Ticket price is only 100 baht.
พลังของมันยิ่งใหญ่เพียงใด เราขอชวนคุณมาพิสูจน์ใน Speak Up หนังเรื่องแรกของโปรแกรมสุดพิเศษ "French Doc Night" จากความร่วมมือของสถานทูตฝรั่งเศสและ Doc Club Theater ซึ่งจะเปิดตัวสารคดีฝรั่งเศสคุณภาพทั้งใหม่ เก่า คลาสสิก ทุกวันศุกร์ที่สองของเดือน ตลอดทั้งปี!
The second session of French Doc Night will be in June with " We did it on a song" followed by others movies :
BPM at BKKSCR
Let's watch the chef-d'oeuvre 120 BPM once again : this time at Bangkok screening room! Members of the advocacy group ACT UP Paris demand action by the government and pharmaceutical companies to combat the AIDS epidemic in the early 1990s.
CINEMA DIVERSE at BACC
"Bande de filles" means girls crew or girls squad in French but girlhood also tells a lot about this powerful movie. A girl with few real prospects joins a gang, reinventing herself and gaining a sense of self confidence in the process. However, she soon finds that this new life does not necessarily make her any happier. As part of the invisible hands program of BACC !
NEW CINEMA OPENING
September will see the opening of the brand new auditorium of Alliance Française Bangkok, bigger than the old one with 216 seats, premium acoustic and higher ceilings, for memorable artistic experiences.
Alliance Française Cinema will showcases a variety of movies: classic films and recent releases, fictions, documentaries, animation, popular and independant productions, from France, Thailand and elsewhere.
