Paris Cinema Festival from Lost in Frenchlation

Poster for La Chaise et l'Ecran, du cinéma dans nos ruesThis is a summer invitation for the event La Chaise et l’Écran cinema festival “cinéma dans nos rues” (on the Paris streets) from Manon at “Lost in Frenchlation“.

Here’s hoping for a warm Friday, August 19, 12 Place Léon Blum, Paris 75011 (metro: Voltaire – line 9). Although walking distance from my apartment, my feet will be walking in Washington DC that night.

Lost in Frenchlation screens current French films throughout the year. Here is your chance to enjoy French culture in the open air for free with seating provided; another opportunity to watch French films with English translations. Enjoy!

“Bonjour !
Lost in Frenchlation is proud to be working together with La Mairie du 11ème (mayor’s office in the eleventh district/arrondissement) to bring you a free outdoor screening of three French short films with English subtitles as part of the highly anticipated 9th annual La Chaise et l’Écran cinema festival! The short films will be followed by the classic feature length film ‘L’Aventure c’est l’Aventure’ from Claude Lelouch which unfortunately will not be subtitled, but will be a worthy challenge for those of you looking to test your French.

This Web site and and its blog articles are for travelers to Paris who are looking for advice from someone who lives in Paris. These tips are "for Parisians at heart". Many people would like to visit, some can and some cannot - so I will help you enjoy a glimpse of the city and its surroundings. This project has been ongoing since 2002. Prior to living in Paris (since 1992) my European history began in the early 70s with three years in Wiesbaden, Germany. My next foray onto the Continent was in the mid-80s after graduation from the University of Florida (where I met Erik): traveling around Europe and UK with my friend, Margie, hitchhiking around and working in Ireland. After living and working as a journalist in Sweden for four years, traveling on boats, the Trans-Siberian Railway, local trains and planes took Erik and I around the world. I began working as a flight attendant in 1990 for American Airlines, based in Chicago. We moved to Paris, France in 1992 where I commuted between Paris and Chicago for my flight attendant/stewardess job. Finally my inner voice said "Stop!" and I left American Airlines six weeks shy of 20 years January 1, 2010. Now that is over and I am back working as a journalist and photographer full time on - My videos are posted on YouTube on the colleensparis youtube channel. and I am active in Toastmasters 75. Enjoy!
