The Goethe-Institut Montréal has announced a new series of projections on its facades on Boulevard Saint-Laurent. Running until November 30 and inspired by the Frankfurt Book Fair in Germany, of which Canada is the country in the spotlight this year, the Goethe-Institut will present a selection of the best short films from the ZEBRA Poetry FilmFestival, the Berlin Poetry Film Festival.

Until November 30, 12 animated shorts, experimental films on personal destinies, social issues and climate change will be projected on the facades of the establishment. Selected by the festival’s artistic director, Thomas Zandegiacomo Del Bel, the program features a selection of the best poetry films from previous editions of the ZEBRA Poetry Film Festival.

The full list of films is available here.

The films will be screened until November 30, 2021, every evening from nightfall until midnight on the big screen, on the façade of the Goethe-Institut building located at 1626 Saint-Laurent Boulevard.
