On Friday, February 22, France will celebrate the best films of the past year at the 44th annual César Ceremony organized by the French Academy of Cinema Arts and Techniques. The following day, the Sacramento French Film Festival will present all nine short films nominated for a 2019 César in the Animation and Live-Action categories.
Don't miss this unique interactive screening, one of our most popular events of the year!
FUN FACT about the 2019 César Awards: Among the feature films nominees, the gripping thriller Custody (Jusqu'à la garde), that closed the 2018 SFFF last June, is leading the nominations (10), along with Sink or swim (Le Grand Bain), a delightful comedy we hope to bring to you sometimes this season!
NINE SHORT FILMS
The 2019 César nominees compose a very strong selection, and we are proud to have already presented three of the nine shorts nominated: Laissez-moi danser (Let me Dance) and Les Indes Galantes were part of our 2018 SFFF selection; while Kapitalistis was presented at our 5th MiniFest last October. These three films will be shown in the 2nd part of the program for those of you who have seen them already.
The film program will begin at 7pm.
There will be an intermission.
Find out more about each film HERE!
At the end of the screening, you will be invited to vote for the “Sacramento César Awards” in the Best Animated and Live Action categories.
The actual César winners will be announced at the end of the evening, along with the results of our very own Sacramento voting. Will you agree with the French Academy? Let's find out on February 23!
