What’s on this week?

There is information about events in February and March in Kaleidoscope this week. News about the French Film Festival, Holden Street Fringe Program and an amazing event in the Arts Festival with Robert Davidson and Sonya Lifschitz, to help you make important choices. What should I go and see? What must I Absolutely Go and See?  Your choice.

The Alliance Français French Film Festival runs from the 23 March to 19 April, with thirty nine films, and multiple showings, so no need to miss out any. Associate-Professor Ben McCann is my guest talking about some of the films – French films being his expertise.
