The French Film Club of Palo Alto has been founded as a non-profit by a group of lovers of the French cinema, to share their passion and emotions towards 'le 7eme art'. We believe that movies are beautiful conveyors of culture, through humor, emotions, references to history. We are certain that the values conveyed by the rich French cinematographic scene can be shared and discovered by everyone, whether you speak French or not. The club is opened to everybody, young, old, French or not.
The club meets at All Saints twice a month on the first and third Fridays of the month.
The group gathers at 7pm for coffee, tea, buffet of pate and cheese, conversation and French wine/aperitif. After the movie there is discussion and dessert. The FFCPA is very proud to bring two Film Experts to present the movies and drive a Q & A conversation style at the end of the screening.
