Dear Amis du Festival,

It is official!

Due to the coronavirus pandemic, the 19th edition of the Sacramento French Film Festival will be virtual.

Held over 10 days, June 19-28, 2020, the SFFF will present a collection of about 10 new feature films, otherwise unavailable in the U.S. that you will be able to watch on-demand, from the comfort of your home.

Despite social distancing, we will keep our event festive and convivial with virtual Q&A sessions & partnerships with local restaurants.

We are aware that a lot of people are facing or will face financial difficulties due to the pandemic and we haven’t sent out our annual appeals for support and volunteering this year. But, even though we will not incur some of the usual expenses associated with producing our main Festival live, we face a new set of costs to host and manage virtual screenings, and your help is still essential to make it happen.

How you can help!

VIRTUAL CINEMA: Stream French films with the Sacramento French Film Festival!

As you may know, we have started offering Virtual Cinema on demand and virtual Q&As to stay connected (FIND OUR CURRENT LINEUP HERE)! Your rental supports the Festival.

The cost to stream each film is $10 or $12, and the SFFF gets 50% of the net revenue. So watching a film is a great way to show your support while getting to escape to France for a few hours!

DONATE!

If you are in a position to give, we would truly appreciate your much-needed support to allow us to continue our programs, virtually and – fingers crossed – back in a real theater once it is safe to do so! Your donations will also help us plan for our 20th anniversary season of events next year.

Please note that due to the uncertainty of the situation, we are unable to announce benefit packages for our sponsors at this time (FYI, the 2019 Sponsoring levels are listed below. We will do our best to offer benefits appropriate to your donation level, which could include MiniFest admission this year).

You can donate through PAYPAL
(Click on the yellow "Donate" Button
at the top right corner of this page.)

Merci for donating what you can, if you can.
We are extending a huge thanks to those of you who have already sent their donations, your loyalty means a lot. We are pleased to recognize you HERE.

SPREAD THE WORD!

More than ever, you can be our ambassadors! This year, there will be no need to travel to Sacramento to attend the Festival and you can share the love with your French & film loving friends all over the U.S.

We encourage you to share the link to our virtual portal broadly on social media when it becomes available!

Merci !

Although we will miss getting together, we are grateful to be able to continue presenting the Festival by bringing the best of France to Sacramento living rooms! We hope you'll let us in...

In these distressing times, we hope that you, your family, and friends are staying healthy and safe.

Sincerely,
Cécile & the SFFF Team

The Sacramento French Film Festival depends on support from our sponsors to bring the highest-quality films to Sacramento while keeping event pricing affordable to a wide audience. Your contribution enables the SFFF to continue its tradition of high-quality, fun, and thought-provoking events!
