Preview: Let's French Again Festival

Food, wine films all en francais coming our way next week. The Let's French Again Festival, runs from Tuesday  ton Saturday  in Waterford city.  Special event dinners take place in the French restaurants, L'Atmosphere and La Boheme and also at the Atheneum Hotel where the delightfully named chef, Jean Baptiste Dubois presides over the kitchen. I am looking forward to the films taking place in Greyfriars Gallery. A fairly recent animation flick opens the procedings on Tuesday and the teatime slot should suit younger viewers. My top pick though is  Saturday nights offering, described in this review as 'a pop art opera' with music by the wonderful Michel Legrand. All the films are FREE events.

Also on view next week is an exhibition of art work by 1980's graduates of WIT Art Department. Among the exhibitors are familiar names from the Waterford Arts scene -Ger Kennedy, Ben Hennessy, Jane O Brien Moran among the list of contributors to the display at the Mother of Pearl Tea Rooms in Tramore.

Note added Sunday 6th April: Apologies to any of my readers who turned up at Greyfriars on Saturday expecting to see the scheduled Les Parapluies de Cherbourg. To my chagrin, for  reasons I did not manage to ascertain, the film wasn't shown and an alternative choice was shown at the earlier time of 4pm. The change was unfortunately  not posted on the festival facebook page.
