Calling all budding cinéastes! French Film Competition 2012

The Faculty of Medieval and Modern Languages at Oxford University is looking for budding film enthusiasts in Years 10-11 and 12-13 to show their imaginative engagement with the world of French cinema. To enter the competition, students in each age group are asked to re-write the ending of a film in no more than 1500 words (in English). The films for 2012 are:

Years 10-11: Le Grand Voyage, dir. Ismaël Ferroukhi (2004)
Years 12-13: On connaît la chanson, dir. Alain Resnais (1997)

A first prize of £100 will be awarded to the winning student in each age group, with runner-up prizes of £25. The teacher of each winning student will be offered free attendance at the Sir Robert Taylor Society Conference, a forum for continuing professional development and exchange between practitioners of modern foreign languages teaching in secondary and higher education.

For further details about entering the competition, see the FAQs. Each essay should be accompanied by a cover sheet.

Essays and cover sheets should be submitted by email to by noon on 30 March 2012.

The French Film Competition is very grateful for the generosity of the French Embassy in London and the Sir Robert Taylor Society.
