About the Film Club

The French Film Club of San Diego was started in 2017 by Amelie Catheline, Farnaz Shipee, and Olivier Pasco. The goal was to gather cinephiles passionate about French films once a month to be able to connect, talk and watch a movie together. 

The Alliance Française San Diego is happy to continue this mission aligned with our own to promote the French Language and francophone cultures in San Diego. Our partnership brings together two entities to give you better access to classical films or recent releases in French.

We want to thank Olivier Pasco for his involvement in making these events possible.


Thank you to Olivier for selecting the perfect movies that can engage, move, shock you or make you cry but will never leave you indifferent.

These events are possible thanks to the sponsorship of 

Ingrid Pasco, realtor.

Ingrid has been involved with the French communities since she arrived in San Diego in 2001. Her expertise in real estate and extended network have allowed her to achieve record-breaking prices for her sellers and to secure winning bids for her buyers.

She provides refreshments to enjoy during each movie.
