Year 10 Visits French Film Festival

By Ms Rhiannon Richards, French Teacher

In Term 1, Radford College's Year 10 French class was fortunate enough to visit the French Film Festival at Palace Electric Cinema in the NewActon Precinct. Several films were on offer for the school section of the film festival. The one we saw was titled La Belle Étoile (Sugar and Stars), featuring the real-life story of a young man’s struggles to overcome his difficult upbringing to become a top chef.

Each year wonderful films are offered, and this year was no exception. We were treated to a screening in a small theatre, which we had to ourselves. The film, generous in length, took us on an emotional journey and allowed us to check our French understanding against the English subtitles. We were also fortunate enough to be able to take our French Assistant Tom, who seemed so impressed with the local French offerings that he was planning to return to the festival before it closed!

We thank the Palace Electric Cinema for another wonderful experience. We hope to return again next year.
