Charleston French Film Festival
The Charleston French Film Festival was created in 1998 to introduce contemporary French cinema to College of Charleston students. Housed since 1999 in the beautiful and historic Sottile Theater, in the heart of downtown Charleston, SC. It attracts today, beyond its traditional student and faculty audience, a large number of Charlestonians as well as out of town cinema buffs.
Since it started eleven years ago, the festival aims at reaching beyond strictly French cinema. The festival selections include movies from all over the Francophone world, as well as full-length features co-produced with other European countries. In 2001, the French Film Festival expanded its outreach to the community by participating in the first South Carolina Independent Film Festival held in the framework of Piccolo Spoleto.
Corporate as well as private sponsorship is available for 2011. All of the tax deductible funds collected go to development and production costs surrounding the French Film Festival. Sponsors are recognized on the festival’s Web site, at each performance and in the festival’s brochure. Interested sponsors should write to:
