Festival du nouveau cinéma
More than anything, the Festival du nouveau cinéma is about a spirit, the spirit of good company, revelry and fun. Every edition is a chance to get together and celebrate our shared passion for film around each new lineup. The eleven-day Festival is designed as a space devoted to discussions, meetings and sharing, where film fans can come together with artists and professionals to exchange ideas in an informal setting. Film isn’t something to be kept cloistered in an ivory tower. At the Festival du nouveau cinéma, we believe there’s nothing more important than keeping the flame alive, together. With an eye to the future and keenly aware of the importance of a solidly established base, the Festival du nouveau cinéma remains determined to expand the horizons of Montreal audiences by showing them original ways of presenting the moving image. Spurred on by its founders Claude Chamberlan and Dimitri Eipidès, the Festival has consistently juxtaposed bold ideas with impeccable taste.
