A French Christmas | You may be ready for Christmas but are you ready for French Christmas? Even though Christmas is a Christian holiday, it has so many different flavors, stories, traditions, even within France. Let me take you on a magical trip to French regions that will all tell you a different Christmas story. Presentation by Virginie Paradis.


The French Truly Salon is a monthly series co-presented by SIFF and French Truly. The French Truly Salon is an experience unique to Seattle, marrying French language, culture, history and cinema. The evening starts with a French cultural keynote presentation by Virginie Paradis, the theme carefully selected to relate to a French feature film. The evening also includes a reception featuring French cheese and hors d'oeuvres while the guests mingle. All films presented in French language with English subtitles.

Reception features pastries from La Parisienne French Bakery and imported French wine courtesy of J Wines.
