Spotlight on a Sponsor: Aircalin

To celebrate our 2017 Festival sponsors, we are continuing our ‘Spotlight on a Sponsor’ special on our blog to introduce the people behind the brand. This week, we are pleased to present our wonderful Sponsor Aircalin.

Angela Hallett sat down to answer our short questionnaire and give us some insight into the company.

What is your favourite way to enjoy fine French cinema?
Going to the Alliance Française French Film Festival. With so many movies to choose from it is going to be a busy time trying to fit as many in as possible.

Which French films are you hoping to see in the 2017 programme (contemporary or classic)?
With the French being such good movie-makers, there is always something thought-provoking to see in all genres but I particularly like comedy and drama, so Penny Pincher and Mercenary respectively are two that I am looking forward to seeing.

How does your company bring a French touch to New Zealand?
Aircalin is the international airline of New Caledonia….a little piece of France in the South Pacific, a less than 3 hour flight from Auckland.

If you could dine with any French star, who would you choose?
Gérard Dépardieu because I think it would be a very entertaining dining experience!

What are you most looking forward to at the 2017 Alliance Française French Film Festival?
Seeing French culture lit up on screen and being transported through all different emotions we meet in life.
