French Media – Les Enjeux de la Presse

5 & 12 February 2014 @ AF de Manchester



Wed 5 February (3pm-4.45pm)

Screening of La Maison de la Radio
in this documentary, Nicolas Philibert (Etre et Avoir) portrays that which cannot be seen… Shouldering his camera, he spent half a year wandering the endless corridors of Radio France’s ‘round house’. His film shows the entire spectrum of political and cultural programmes, concerts, readings, location reportage, interviews, and phone-in chat shows. A monument to the diligent creators behind the medium of radio.
In French with English subtitles.

Wed 12 February (2pm-5pm) – booking required (see below)

Media workshops (2pm-3.30pm)
Two workshops will be conducted in French, animated by teachers from the French Studies department of the University of Manchester, around the theme of media and the French radio “Radio France”. A good opportunity to practise your French, and reflect upon the changing role of media, as well as the role of image and illustration in the press.

Plenary session with French journalist Franck Mathevon (3.30pm-5pm)

Franck Mathevon is the corespondant of Radio France in the United Kingdom. He will introduce himself, present his work and will answer your various questions. This meeting and discussion will be conducted in French.
