The Sacramento French Film Festival is a unique cultural event that brings people together around films and French culture in a festive atmosphere. The SFFF celebrates the artistic, cultural, social and historical values of films. The SFFF fosters friendly relations between American and French people through the universal language of art. The SFFF organizes other events throughout the year, like a popular Winter Short Film Screening and a Fall Mini Fest.

The SFFF is held every summer at the Crest Theatre in Downtown Sacramento. It is dedicated to celebrating the present and the rich history of French cinema by premiering new films, rediscovering classics, presenting French short films in exclusivity, and Sacramento shorts with a «French flavor» produced by Sacramento artists.

Held for the past 13 years at the Crest Theatre, Sacramento’s last art deco movie palace, the SFFF reaches thousand of people each year and plays an important part in the cultural life of Downtown Sacramento. In 2016, the SFFF started holding a few screenings at the Esquire IMAX Theatre.

The SFFF opens each year on a Friday night. Opening festivities include a film and a catered reception. Films continue all day long Saturday and Sunday for two consecutive weekends. Late Night Movies for mature audience are presented on Saturdays. The SFFF concludes on a Sunday night with a champagne party following the closing film. All films are presented in French with English subtitles. Each film is shown either once or twice. Tickets are available for single films & passes are available for special events, one weekend, and for the whole festival.
