• Sarah Préfère la Course, by Chloé Robichaud

UN CERTAIN REGARD, FESTIVAL DE CANNES 2013

During the screening of Sarah préfère la course, I’ll be on hand providing live commentary.This is a one-of-a-kind experience that will give the audience some insight into my goals as a director. I’ll also tell some stories from behind the scenes and comment on the lessons I learned while shooting. — Chloé Robichaud

Rendez-vous on October 11 at 5 pm at Pavillon Judith-Jasmin annexe (Cinema 1), 1564 Rue St-Denis Métro Berri-UQAM (free entry, in the limit of available seats).

 

• Vic+Flo ont vu un Ours, by Denis Côté

SILVER BEAR, BERLINALE 2013

Too often, the only chance we get to hear a filmmaker discuss his or her work is the lukewarm ritual of watching bonus features on the DVD at home. The Vic+Flo experience is an invitation to look through the keyhole and discover a few genuine secrets. Louis Malle liked to say that he preferred for the audience to leave with questions rather than answers. Just this once, let’s disappoint him. — Denis Côté
Rendez-vous at Cinema du Parc October 16 at 5 pm (free entry in the limit of available seats).

LE COULEUR, with their sweet, French-pop sounds, will also be there, bringing summer breezes with them.
