Special screening of ‘Mustang’ held for members of the France Alumni Australie Network
On December 8 2016 in Sydney, and December 11 2016 in Melbourne, members of the France Alumni Australie Network and the friends of France were invited to a screening of the Franco-Turkish film ‘Mustang’. The events were hosted by the Embassy of France with the support of the Alliance Française de Sydney and the Alliance Française de Melbourne.
The two events, held in Sydney and Melbourne respectively, were marked by the screening of the film ‘Mustang’. This iconic film united many of the Alumni Fémis with its strong and universal values relating to humanity, equality and freedom. The events encouraged a large number of those invited to sign up to the France Alumni Australie Network. The film ‘Mustang’ has received critical acclaim, winning awards at the Sarajevo Festival and the Prix LUX of the European Parliament in 2015. It is representing France in the nominations competition for the 2016 Oscars and the Golden Globes.
The first screening was held at Chauvel Cinemas in Sydney, with over 250 attendees in the audience, including members of France Alumni Australie.
The second screening was held at Palace Como Cinema in Melbourne, with 130 attendees in the audience, including members of France Alumni Australie.
The two evenings were both a great success, with a considerable amount of new memberships registered.
Following the screenings of ‘Mustang’, the France Alumni Australie network now stands at 355 members.
The events were coordinated by the Embassy of France in conjunction with the Alliance Française de Sydney and the Alliance Française de Melbourne, supported by France Alumni Australie, Campus France Australie and Madman Entertainment.
