For our October Apéro Bla Bla evening we chose a screening of the 2021 release Eiffel, starring Romain Duris, in the title role and Emma Mackey, as the romantic interest, Adrienne. While the romantic narrative may have little or no basis in reality, the story certainly conveyed Eiffel’s vision and struggles to have his ambitious project come to completion.
Thankfully, there was only one vertigo-inducing scene, so our capacity audience was able to continue enjoying some refreshments and nibbles and some bla bla during a brief intermission.
We would like to thank our faithful supporters for their continued attendance at our activities and extend a special welcome to some 'new'
faces. It is always great and gratifying to hear how people find out about our events. One 'older' gentleman saw our stand-out gazebo at one
of the many markets Alexis attends, and another attendee had heard about us earlier in the year at the 'chicks at the flicks' screening of Mrs
Harris goes to Paris at
The Strand Cinema.
If you can’t wait until next year’s film nights, please be aware that there are just so many opportunities nowadays to watch French films and mini-series on SBS World Movies and On-Demand, on Netflix and on TV5 Monde Plus on Culturethèque, through your AFT membership.

A 'full house' enjoyed a French film session on Friday, 19 May. After a brief welcome refreshment the crowd settled down to watch Mon Meilleur Ami (My Best Friend), starring Daniel Auteuil, Dany Boon and Julie Gaynet. Once more, a quirky 'friendship' film with the tension palpable during the climatic Who wants to be a millionnaire? scene.
It was great to welcome regulars, welcome back returning members and especially to welcome brand new francophones and francophiles to the Alliance Française de Toowoomba community.
