Bastia's Mideterranean cultures film festival (whew, what a mouthfull!) is an excellent film festival that takes place in november (date changes from year to year) and, as its name suggests, has films from all the countries on the Mideterranean sea. Its great!
You're not serious, are you looking for nightlife in a town of 50,000 people? Well, Bastia does have, in fact, a very vibrant music/theatre/art scene for its size!
In the middle of October, Bastia holds its "Musicales de Bastia" which starts at 18:30 and lasts until the early hours. There are many musicians from all around the world, as well as a sizeable Corsican contingency. Its great fun and good music sometimes mixed with dance and theatre, and a good place to meet people.
If you want to go out at night in Corsica head to these clubs.
