Manchester Film Weekender 2022/2023 Update: We are delighted to be partnering with Alliance Française in bringing French Cinema to Altrincham, presenting a season of films on Sundays. Screenings are due to begin in September 2022. Full programme details, times and dates will be available here nearer the time.

The film weekend in February 2023 will showcase seven French comedy films introduced by Isabelle Vanderschelden.

This unique cooperation presents an opportunity to see seventeen French films with English subtitles, some of which may not have been released commercially in the UK. Each film will be introduced by a member of Alliance Française, who will also conduct the post-screening discussion.

Screenings will be at Altrincham Little Theatre on a full-size cinema screen.


The Alliance Française de Manchester is a locally-registered and locally-run charity which promotes knowledge of the French language and Francophone cultures. It offers group courses and private tuition at all levels and is a test centre for official French-Language exams. More than just a language school, it offers an immersive experience with its lending library and cultural programme.
