Three French Couples Who Changed History | The power of French love! Dive into the creative genius of these three French couples of philosophers, thinkers, writers, scientists, and political activists who changed history not only in France but all over the word thanks to their contribution throughout the centuries.


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.
