11:15am – LOST IN PARIS (Paris Pieds Nus, 84 min) by Dominique Abel & Fiona Gordon, 2016 - SLAPSTICK COMEDY
The SFFF invites you to discover the tender slapstick comedy LOST IN PARIS before its release in France!
Full of amazing physical comedy and intricately choreographed slapstick, LOST IN PARIS is a wonderful, fun and hectic tale of peculiar people finding love in the City of Lights. Though they are barely known in the U.S., actors and co-directors Dominique Abel and Fiona Gordon (he is Belgian, she is Canadian) have been making films together for 20 years. Filmed in their signature whimsical style, LOST IN PARIS is a fabulous introduction to their work.
Rendez-vous after the screening for a Q&A with Le Professeur Kevin Elstob.

1:20pm – THANKS BOSS! (Merci Patron !, 90 min) by François Ruffin, 2016 – SATIRICAL DOCUMENTARY– U.S. PREMIERE!
The SFFF is proud to present a funny and surprising documentary with a Robin Hood twist, in its U.S. premiere! THANKS BOSS! was a huge surprise hit in France, with spontaneous clapping and standing ovations happening in theaters all over the country. We hope Sacramento will enjoy it, too!
Rendez-vous after the screening for a Q&A with Le Professeur Kevin Elstob.

3:30pm – THE STUDENT AND MR. HENRI (L’Etudiante et Monsieur Henri, 98 min) by Ivan Calbérac, 2015 – TIMELESS COMEDY – WEST COAST PREMIERE!
In this classic farce in which an old curmudgeon is softened by youth, veteran actor Claude Brasseur stars as Monsieur Henri, an older man who agrees to rent out a room in his Parisian apartment to a young student. Uproariously fun from start to finish, with an uplifting message, THE STUDENT AND MR. HENRI is a proven audience favorite!

5:45pm – THE FABULOUS PATARS (Cigarettes et chocolat chaud, 98 min) by Sophie Reine, 2016 – QUIRKY COMEDY – U.S. PREMIERE!
The SFFF invites you to discover the super fun, quirky and adorable comedy THE FABULOUS PATARS in its U.S. Premiere, before its release in France!
Denis Patar is a doting but overworked single father who struggles to raise his daughters, Janine and Mercredi. When he forgets to pick up Mercredi one too many times at school, a social worker is sent to scrutinize the family's daily routines. And soon Denis is sent to a parental training course. Will the eccentric family be able to conform in order to remain together?

8pm – FRANTZ (113 min) by François Ozon, 2016 – WARTIME MELODRAMA
In a small German town shortly after the end of World War I, Anna (Paula Beer) makes daily visit to the grave of her fiancé Frantz, killed in the trenches in France. One day she is intrigued by a mysterious young man who has come to lay flowers on Frantz’s grave. Deeply moving and enthrallingly beautiful, FRANTZ is a pure melodrama, with romance and tears. It is also full of hope as we follow Anna on her journey toward independence and a new future.
Rendez-Vous after the screening for a Q&A with Le Professeur Kevin Elstob and Dr. Jeffrey K. Wilson (Specialist in modern German history, Associate Professor & Chair, History Department, CSUS).

• Each Feature film will be preceded by a short film.
• The screening of FRANTZ will be followed by coffee (provided by Coffee Works) and pastries.
