These are ten days where we can watch, appreciate and celebrate films made right here in Quebec. A golden opportunity to catch up on the best films of 2010, meet and discuss things with those in the industry, discover an up-and-coming local talent, and understand what is going on in the Quebec film industry. Opportunities abound, so reach out and grab them!
Almost 300 films will be screened at the festival of the short and long variety. To start things off with a bang, the Canadian premiere of Stephane Lafleur's" En Terrains Connus" and it will all come to an end with Tara Johns' "The Year Dolly Parton Was My Mom". In between there are sure delights like "The Trotsky" starring Montreal's own Jay Baruchel, the latest Lea Pool film "La Derniere Fugue", Denis Villeneuves Oscar nominated film "Incendies", and "Gerry: Prelude", a film about iconic Quebecois musician Gerry Boulet.
In this the 29th edition of the Rendez Vous du cinema Quebecois offers a few things other than films. In collaboration with the Nuits Blanches on Saturday, February 26 outside at the Quartier des Spectacles there will be a big outdoor party, at Place Pasteur there is a photo exhibit (February 2-March 13), 5à7 each evening at the Bistro SAQ, and cinema Lessons offered by experts from the industry.
