ABOUT US

Our Story

Lost in Frenchlation opens up the world of French cinema to the international community of Paris by screening the latest French films with English subtitles, and hosting drinks before or after the screening so that the international crowd can meet each other and native Parisians.

The concept was born out of the frustration experienced by Lost in Frenchlation’s Co-Founders, Matt and Manon, when they couldn’t go to the cinema together due to Matt’s lack of French language skills. There wasn’t a single cinema in Paris regularly screening French films with English subtitles, meaning that the international community – Paris’ many expatriates, international students and tourists – couldn’t access French cinema, one of the country’s greatest arts and an important part of French culture.

These days, thanks to Lost in Frenchlation, the international community can enjoy the same French films that the locals are watching, in the same beautiful and iconic cinemas. We are currently running weekly screenings at cinema Studio 28, Paris’ oldest room located in the heart of Montmartre, the stunning boat-themed cinema Club de l’Étoile located just off the iconic Champs-Elysées and only 2 blocks from the Arc de Triomphe, and Luminor cinema, centrally located in Paris’ lively Marais district near Hôtel de Ville.

If you want to enjoy some of the best movies the global film industry has to offer, while meeting new people and becoming even more immersed in French culture, get to a Lost in Frenchlation event soon! You can check out our programme HERE.

MANON KERJEAN Co-Founder

The international duo behind Lost in Frenchlation is Manon and Matt, and we first crossed paths when we were both studying in Berlin in 2014.

Matt is Australian and although he lived in Paris for nearly a year, he wasn’t able to watch a single French film in a Parisian cinema. He now works in finance in London and dedicates his spare time to getting Lost in Frenchlation up and running and on its way to becoming an independent cinema.

Manon is French and grew up in Paris, and she is absolutely passionate about everything to do with French film. When she’s not busy working on making Lost in Frenchlation a success, she is focused on starting her career as a film editor.
