Whet your appetite (and help raise funds) for the upcoming Sacramento French Film Festival—which takes place June 21–30 this year—by attending the Winter French Short Film Screening this Saturday night. Taking place at Verge Center for the Arts in downtown Sacramento, the event premieres the newest French short films and recaps the 2013 César Awards. Doors open at 6:30 and you’ll want to get there early to enjoy complimentary pizza courtesy of Luigi’s Slice (yes, we are mixing French and Italian here), a no-host wine and pastis bar as well as French pop music with DJ Christophe. Films start at 7:30 p.m. Tickets are $7.
