The French-Bruneian Arts Festival 2016

Alliance Française Brunei will be hosting the first ever French-Bruneian Arts Festival to be held from 12 to 19 November 2016.

The week-long event will host a number of culturally-themed activities, starting with the Vintage French Film Posters Exhibition and a display of French-themed art by the artists at the Rainforest Art Gallery, all of which will be displayed throughout the week at the Rotunda of The Empire Hotel & Country Club. Selected artworks will be available for sale throughout the week through a silent auction, and the highest bidders will be announced on the last evening of the Arts Festival week. The art exhibition is open to the public.

The event will kick off on the evening of 12 November with an opening ceremony with VIP guests enjoying a light meal and mocktails at the art exhibition at the Rotunda of The Empire Hotel & Country Club, before enjoying a film screening of ‘Chocolat’ – a delightful movie about the first black French circus artist named Chocolat – at the Empire Time Cineplex.

There will also be a film screening of the animated movie ‘Phantom Boy’ and a Swiss Film Screening of ‘Deux Jours Avec Mon Pere’ on 16 and 18 November respectively, held at the Alliance Française headquarters at Batu Bersurat.

The week will end with a spectacular Dinner in White to be held at the Indera Kayangan Ballroom at The Empire Hotel & Country Club. The evening will feature a French dinner and live music performances by students and faculty of Yippy Tune School. Highest bidders of the selected works of art will be announced on this evening.
