In the title compound, C29H19F2NO2, the central benzene ring forms a dihedral angle of 56.92 (12)° with the cyano­benzene ring and dihedral angles of 40.91 (12) and 44.76 (12)° with the two fluoro­benzene rings. In the crystal, C—H⋯O and C—H⋯F hydrogen bonds link the mol­ecules into sheets lying parallel to the ab plane. The crystal packing also features C—H⋯π inter­actions involving the central benzene ring.
