Let's talk about cinema!
During this time of quarantine, it's important to socialize and have fun! And it's even better when you can do so by practicing your French and sharing your love of cinema and Francophones cultures.
How does it work ?
- Each week, we have chosen a film for you to view at home; our selections are available via various streaming services.
- Every participant watches the film before the discussion at a time that fits their own schedule.
- On Friday at 5PM, participants join a meeting on Zoom and discuss about the film.
It's a donation-based event (suggested donation: $10).
