What we're about
We are a group of movie fans united by our love of current -- and classic -- French films, and more. What's the "more?" Well, French Food, French Art -- whatever strikes our fancy. If you can't distinguish Mathieu Amalric from Mathieu Kassovitz, you're welcome! If you don't know the difference between the Nouvelle vague and Nouvelle cuisine, you're welcome! If you do know the differences, you're welcome! Whether you speak French fluently, a little, or not at all, you're welcome! All you need to join us is an interest and passion for French cinema and culture.
Our base of operations will be the mid-Peninsula, taking advantage of the local Landmark and CineArts theaters, and extending to San Francisco and other Bay Area venues, when the programming is appropriate. Our goal is to see these movies as they were meant to be seen: On the big screen, with other fans!
Our "More" activities may include visits to: local museums, farmers' markets, cooking schools, and other locations we haven't thought of, yet! This area is rich with French resources, and we want to explore them, together.
After three no-shows, you will be removed from the group. This is to ensure fairness and quality of events. Many events have limited attendance; if you sign up but don't show, you are taking the place of someone who would have been happy to come instead. Changing your RSVP is a simple matter of courtesy and good manners and takes just a minute or two of your time. Please consider others who would very much like to attend events but never make it off the waiting list.
