The Festival du nouveau cinema, in its FNC Lab section, offers a series of performances bridging different disciplines and forms of expression, a rare chance for artists to commune with a wide range of audiences. Focused on the “live” aspect of audiovisual and cinematic works, the performances form a heterogeneous collection of practices focused on the presence, performative aspect and perceptual experience of sounds and images.

NFB Playlist

8_10_2011

For the 40th anniversary of the Festival du nouveau cinéma, the NFB asked the Festival programmers to draw up a list of NFB films that have made an impression on them over the years. After much reflection, the team selected 10 films that you can watch on the NFB website, and a list of 40 works (most of them have previously been screened at the FNC).

“Naturally, it started out as a game, a demanding and complex game that involved agreeing on a history of these past 40 years. Placing all these films within the collective memory that cinematic works cultivate. Films that FNC has screened, or in some, many, instances would have liked to have screened… A history that spans filmmaking in Quebec and the world: the greats of direct cinema, the masters of animation. In the end, it really only reveals a tiny part of that history, since new stories are constantly added to the ongoing saga.”
Philippe Gajan, FNC programmers – short films/FNC Lab
