The Sacramento French Film Festival is celebrating 20 years in 2021 with a series of monthly French film screenings leading up to the summer festival, set to be virtual for the second year in a row due to the Covid-19 pandemic.

Co-founder Cécile Mouette Downs is on this week's episode of the Visit Sacramento Podcast sharing what films festival fans can look forward to, the unique opportunities presented by the virtual format – live Zoom discussions with directors in Paris being one – and what she's looking forward to about the return to an in-person festival in the future.
