YOU make the Festival happen!
In June 2016, the SFFF celebrates its 15th Anniversary!
While our audience continues to grow, so do the costs of organizing the Festival. Our tickets sales cover about half of our operating costsand the remainder must be raised through our loyal supporters.
The SFFF is organized by the Sacramento French Cultural Society, a 501 (c) (3) non-profit organization. Your contribution is tax deductible to the fullest extent of the law.
Over time, our organization has expanded and diversified its annual program offerings beyond the June festival with our Winter Short Film Screening (the 9th edition was held on March 5, 2016 at the Crest Theatre), and our Mini Fall French Film Fest (2016 dates & location TBA).
We have also strived to present film programs with a broad array of genres, subjects, and points of view that provoke thought as well as entertain. With the many challenges facing our society today, we believe the SFFF’s mission of providing exposure to and understanding of different cultures is more relevant than ever. Film is a powerful medium in which to share international perspectives on important issues, as well as underscore the universalities of human life that transcend borders and language. Our 2015 offerings exemplified the range of topics being explored in contemporary French cinema, including immigration (our 2015 opening comedy, Samba), racial and cultural issues (Girlhood, Once in a Lifetime), women’s rights (Mustang), religious fundamentalism (Timbuktu), social and economic issues (Hippocrates, The Measure of a Man), LGBT issues (The New Girlfriend), and even philosophical issues (The Kidnapping of Michel Houellebecq)
We offer wonderful opportunities to support the Sacramento French Film Festival. Whether you are a business (Corporate Sponsorhip) or an individual (Ami du Festival); whether you are interested in making a cash or in-kind contribution, there is an option that is right for you! We hope that you will be interested in joining the businesses and individuals who care about the success of the Festival and help us make each edition better than the last!
