To celebrate the launch of the festival and the 10th anniversary of the Worldwise Learning Centre, a special event will take place from 5pm on Monday 14 October at Mitchell and Kenyon Cinema.

Darius Rahimi, the Deputy Head of the Political Department for the German Embassy, will give a talk on the politics of reconciliation. Other speakers will include UCLan’s Vice-Chancellor Professor Graham Baldwin, Derek Smith, from the Preston Twinning Partnership, and Frédéric Brayard, of UCLan’s School of Language and Global Studies.

This will be followed by an opportunity to network and sample some traditional French and German nibbles and wine before the free screening of the French/German film Frantz, a film set in post-World War I with themes that are highly relevant in today’s divided world.

Tickets for the opening event and film screening on Monday 14 October are free, with tickets for the rest of the week starting at £2.50 per person. For more information and to book, visit Ticket Source.
