FOR ALL OTHER SPONSORING OPTIONS, Please note that we are still exploring options to establish our 2021 sponsoring levels. The benefits listed below are for reference only. We appreciate your patience and support.

Bonjour Les Amis,

Are you excited about the Sacramento French Film Festival turning 20 in 2021?... Help us celebrate in style by making a donation.

In June 2020, the Sacramento French Festival was among the first to reinvent what a film festival can be during a pandemic. Theaters were closed? French distributors were apprehensive about virtual screenings? That didn't stop us: we worked hard to bring the best films and fantastic transatlantic discussions straight to your home! Two virtual film festivals later, we know -because you told us- that, even as we remained physically apart we have helped you feel connected and brought you joy and comfort.

Despite the uncertainties ahead, we are determined to celebrate our 20th year with you in 2021 with special screenings added to our annual events throughout the year. It will be a different celebration than what we had envisioned but with your support, we know we can make it happen! If we made this strange year a bit easier to bear, if you are looking forward to celebrating with us, please show your support with a donation today.

Organizing screenings on a virtual platform is not cheap! Costs haven't dropped because of the pandemic, renting the platform, paying for the rights to show the films, and promoting our events, to name only our main expenses, are as costly as they were before. Meanwhile, virtual screenings structurally do not raise as much funds as in-person events.

Receiving your donation now makes it easier for us to make plans for our 20th year celebrations. We offer two options to donate online: Paypal or Square (see upper right corner of this page).

Your donation, added to those of other passionate individuals like you, is instrumental in keeping us alive and maintaining the quality, diversity, and success of our programs. Thank you for being a friend of the Festival!

Sincerely,
Cécile & the SFFF Team
