From April 15 to 24, the Cabane à Sang festival celebrates its fifth anniversary in a hybrid format – online and in person. On April 15, programming dedicated solely to science fiction will be offered for free live on Facebook. The next day, the festival moves to Hochellywood – Hochelaga for B movie lovers. The public is invited to the Ancien Marché Maisonneuve for an evening dedicated to horror and trash.
The complete program of the festival will be available on video on demand from April 21 to 24 thanks to the American platform Filmocracy.
During the in person evening, Cabane à Sang will screen the Party Pooper Spectacular Trash Film Competition where directors from Montreal to Gaspésie will compete to win a very very big prize of $200.
The directors of the Party Pooper Spectacular Trash Film Competition have responded to a call launched on social networks by Cabane à Sang. They produced an imposed thematic work with a limited production budget of $200.
Newcomers to the scene, such as director Alix Brenneur and Guillaume Corneau, will then share the screen with well-known names such as Jean-Claude Leblanc and Jimmy G Pettigrew.
The Cabane à Sang festival also presents directors who have already been acclaimed by renowned events such as South By Southwest (Michael Reich, Mike Pinkney).
#MEOWTOO, the most recent short film by South African director Ryan Krueger (Fried Barry), will bring this program of more than 80 films to a close.
