Titane Tower

Bonjour !
We hope you had a beautiful, safe, and relaxing summer.

Fall is upon us and we are sorry to announce that, due to the health situation, as well as other more general factors, we won’t be presenting the MiniFest this year. After a busy and eventful first part of 2021, our team feels the need to slow down and assess the current, still uncertain situation, to determine the best way to continue our mission. Our next confirmed event is the 15th Winter Shorts Fest, early 2022. Date & location TBA.

Love affairs Max

In other news, we are happy to finally announce the Winners of our 2021 Audience Prizes:
2021 Audience Prize: LOVE AFFAIR(S) (Les Choses qu’on dit, les choses qu’on fait) by Emmanuel Mouret
2021 Audience Prize for Short Film: MAX by Florence Hugues

Thanks to all of you who participated in the voting and filled out our 2021 SFFF survey.

IT'S COMING UP NEXT WEEK...

We miss you and would love to take the opportunity to see you in person on Friday October 1st, on the occasion of the release of the much talked about TITANE by Julia Ducournau at the Tower Theatre in Sacramento!
Showtimes have not yet been announced but we are planning for the 7ish pm screening. Stay tuned for more details next week.

If you cannot make it on October 1st, TITANE will play all week at the Tower Theatre (Showtimes TBA).

Faraway friends, please check your local listings to find out if the film is playing at a theater near you.

Regardless on when or where you watch the film, let’s meet on ZOOM for a discussion around TITANE, led by le Professeur Kevin Elstob, on Friday, October 8th @ 6:30pm.

The provocative and controversial TITANE was the surprise winner of the top prize, la Palme d’Or, at this year’s Festival de Cannes. Julia Ducourneau is the second woman director to ever receive the coveted award (in 1993, Jane Campion, The Piano Lesson, shared the top prize with Chen Kaige, Farewell My Concubine). We presented Ducournau's short film Junior at the 11th SFFF in 2012. She followed Junior with her first feature, the cannibal horror-coming of age comedy Raw.

In Titane, a father (Vincent Lindon) is reunited with his son, who disappeared ten years ago. Simultaneously, a series of gruesome murders places the region under pressure. Alexia (Agathe Rousselle), a model in a car showroom, has all the characteristics of the ideal victim…

In a highly positive review, the BBC called Titane "the most shocking film of 2021,” and the film just won the “People's Choice Award for Midnight Madness” at the 2021 Toronto International Film Festival. A body horror thriller, Titane is Rated R for strong violence and disturbing material, graphic nudity, sexual content, and language. If you dare to take the voyage, it is worth the trip. Buckle up!
