This June, the Sacramento French Film Festival will celebrate its 15th anniversary and we need your help to make it the best SFFF ever!
If you think the Sacramento French Film Festival’s mission is one to be supported, please help us continue our good work by donating today. While our audience continues to grow, so do the costs of organizing the Festival. Our tickets sales cover about half of our operating costs and we remain dependent on support from friends like you to bring the highest-quality films to Sacramento at an affordable price. Receiving your donation soon will make it easier for us to plan some exciting surprises for the 15th anniversary year...
Since 2002, the Sacramento French Film Festival has brought the best of contemporary and classic French cinema to Sacramento, reaching thousands of people each year. The SFFF has become a beloved cultural landmark and we are proud to be a part of Sacramento’s vibrant and innovative arts community.
Over time, our organization has expanded and diversified its annual program offerings beyond the June festival with our Winter Short Film Screening (its 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 economical issues (Hippocrates, The Measure of a Man), LGBT issues (The New Girlfriend), and even philosophical issues (The Kidnapping of Michel Houellebecq).
Every year, we continue to receive wonderful recognition from the media and the Sacramento community. Last September, the SFFF was once again voted one of the Top 3 Film Festivals in Sacramento by the readers of the Sacramento News & Review.
