The Alliance Francaise of San Diego is happy to join forces with The French Film Club of San Diego to bring you the best of francophone cinema in America's finest city. 

Each month, you'll be able to see independent or acclaimed movies from all over the French-speaking world. Admission is donation based. 

Dates for 2023 - 2024 

We are very grateful for the San Diego French American School's hospitality, which opened its beautiful auditorium monthly to us. We'll only meet on Friday nights. 

September 8, October 6, November 3, December 1, January 12, February 2, March 1, April 5, May 3, and June 7 (one of these 3 dates will be removed so you can get a chance to visit our San Diego French Film Festival with many movies to enjoy!). 



About this 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 Francaise de 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. 






Watching a movie in French is an excellent way for you to practice or maintain your French language outside the classroom. 

Once a month, we'll gather in a nice auditorium, either at the San Diego French American School, The Language Academy, or at the Lycee Francais de San Diego at 7 pm. 

A showings schedule can be found on our "Monthly Events" page or on our site’s main page. You can also check out our social media to find out which movie we'll be watching. To sustain our event and small nonprofit organization, we suggest a donation of $10 at the door.

Don't forget to sign up for our newsletter  so you don't miss the next movie, location, and date!

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.
