The Sacramento French Film Festival (SFFF), an annual event held in June, celebrates the present as well as the rich history of French cinema featuring new releases and rarely seen classics. It is the only festival dedicated to French cinema in Northern California and one of only two on the West coast.
The 12th SFFF will include premieres never seen before in Sacramento (or even in the U.S.); a fabulous selection of classic French masterpieces; an eclectic collection of French and local short films; two midnight movies followed by coffee and pastries; special guests; delicious food, wine, and champagne; and more.
