Information on the activity

November 1, 2021 to November 14, 2021

The 27th edition of the CINEMANIA French Film Festival presents “Action Montréal!” an itinerary on the theme of “Montreal, City of Cinema” that will run from November 1 to 14 in the form of an exhibition at the Place des Festivals, and a sound trail available throughout the city until July 2022.

“Action Montréal!” is a playful and immersive experience that immerses spectators in the various emblematic filming locations in Montreal and behind the scenes of the creation of scenes with special effects conceived in the city thanks to a screen system.

Each evening, starting at 5:00 p.m., a video projection on the facades of the Wilder and the President-Kennedy Pavilions in UQAM will guide spectators through the various narrative sites in Montreal where scenes from Quebec and international films were shot.

The “Action Montréal!” exhibition will also offer a sound tour, until July 2022, mixing anecdotes and stories of filming in a podcast with testimonies of directors, producers, actors and film critics.
