CINEMANIA AT FOCUS ON FRENCH CINEMA
CINEMANIA attended together with talented Quebecois actors, notably Noah Parker, co-star of AILLEURS, a feature film by Samuel Matteau.
The American audience at the premiere were able to participate in a Q & A hosted by program director Joe Mayers, together with Noah Parker and Guilhem Caillard, managing director of CINEMANIA, and gain insight about the young actor’s co-starring role as a fragile adolescent who escapes his melancholic life in Quebec City to go live in California. Parker also revealed his next project – the eagerly awaited PAUVRE GEORGES, the latest film by Claire Devers opening in Fall 2018 (co-produced by Richard Lalonde of Forum Films)
ACCLAIMED QUEBEC FILMMAKING
Representing Quebec at the Greenwich festival, CINEMANIA also chose to screen HOCHELAGA, TERRE DES AMES by Francois Girard, a feature film that won 4 “Canadian Screen Awards” as well as 10 nominations at the “Iris Gala”.
Audiences greatly appreciated two films starring talented Quebec actress Suzanne Clément – LE SENS DE LA FETE by Olivier Nakache and Eric Toledano and LE RIRE DE MA MERE by Colombe Savignac and Pascal Ralite.
TOUT NOUS SEPARE was among a prestigious group of films selected from CINEMANIA 2017 by “Focus on French Cinema”. The film was presented in person by its director, Thierry Klifa, who conducted a master class for Greenwich audiences.
