For its 27th edition, CINEMANIA will be back in Montreal theatres from November 2 to 14 and online, accessible to the pan-Canadian public from November 2 to 21 on a dedicated broadcast platform.
During this edition, spectators will be able to discover many firsts in the presence of international guests, starting with Catherine Corsini's THE DIVIDE, presented earlier this year in official competition at the Cannes Film Festival, as well as the duo of Khalil Joreige and Joane Hadjithomas who will present the Franco-Lebanese drama MEMORY BOX. There will also be the presence of another duo of directors in the persons of Emmanuel Marre and Julie Lecoustre who will present their film ZERO FUCKS GIVEN with Adèle Exarchopoulos in the lead.
Among the directors invited to the festival, let's note the presence of Gessica Généus whose film FREDA was in the official selection Un Certain Regard at the Cannes Film Festival 2021 as well as the director Laura Wandel who will be present to introduce PLAYGROUND. One of the screenings will be followed by a round table discussion in the presence of the actor/animator Jasmin Roy and the actress Émilie Bierre.
