The 150th anniversary of the birth of Marie Curie was celebrated in style in London last night (7 Nov) with a screening at Institut Français du Royaume-Uni of a new film about her by Marie Noelle who was in attendance to introduce the film and to take part in a Q&A with Kieron Corless of Sight and Sound magazine as part of French Film Festival UK .

Swipe Films are releasing the award-winning film, in cinemas from 24 November after premiere previews in the Festival.

The screening was followed by a party at the nearby Polish Hearth Club on Exhibition Road, hosted by the Polish Ambassador which included scientific demonstrations and a virtual reality trailer. Curie is a legendary scientist who discovered radioactivity (and polonium) and is still the only woman who has won two Nobel Prizes for Science. She had a turbulent love life and first woman ever buried in the Pantheon in Paris, at the memorial dedicated to the “great men” of France.

TEAM WORK: Interns from all over Europe and staff of the French Film Festival UK celebrate the conclusion of another successful edition. Applications are sought now for this year’s edition.

Although the Government has given assurances that the Erasmus scheme will be protected after the transition period many potential candidates are not convinced by all the uncertainty surrounding this and other issues. The French Film Festival UK has benefited enormously over the years by the participation of Erasmus and other European students as part of internship programme.
This year inquiries from potential candidates has practically dried up as a result of the fall-out from the UK’s departure from the EU. Nothing changes during the transition period until the end of the year so anyone seeking an internship this year (and beyond) is welcome to apply.
You will be mentored in skills associated with cultural management, film exhibition and distribution, copy editing, advertising and media liaison.

We suit roles to match your skills in such areas as hospitality, logistics, guest liaison, and coordination.
