Events for Francophiles on this weekend, May 1-3
Have you already watched all the movies on your favorite streaming sites? Here are some new archives that will help you fill your weekend schedule!
Most of them are good for both mother-tongues and for beginners. You can add subtitles to videos, while music does not need a translation. Through some archives, you can even download books and podcasts, which also are splittable onto different levels.
The real plus of the following sites is that they give the possibility to improve your knowledge of the French culture through French sources.
Online events for Francophiles from May 1 to May 3, 2020
- Have you ever heard of Mubi? It is a film streaming service that offers 30 films for free for 30 days. It changes 1 movie per day, to offer always new content. By now, you can watch for sure the movies of the Lost in Frenchlation collection. Movies such as Portrait of a Lady on Fire by Céline Sciamma (Portrait de la Jeune Fille en Feu). Remember! You can cancel your subscription by the first 30 days. In the first 30 days, access is free.
- If you would like to know Paris and France through films, documentaries, concerts, and plays go to the Institut National Audiovisuel’s site and subscribe! The access to their huge archive only costs 2.99 € per month!
- One of my favorite online events in Paris is the streaming of Bizet’s opera Carmen. It is streamed thanks to the Opéra National de Paris until May 3, 2020. Carmen was performed for the first time in Paris, in 1875.
- An amazing online event to virtually join is the soundscaping of the Amazon recorded by the American musician Bernie Krause. The Foundation Cartier in Paris made this recording available online for free. Foundation Cartier’s commitment to contemporary art is not fresh news! This is one of their latest contributions.
