CINEMANIA 2023 official press release

Published on 25/10/2023


The essential Montreal gathering for French-language cinema

Montreal, October 18, 2023 – The CINEMANIA French Film Festival is delighted to unveil the program for its 29th edition, which will take place in Montreal from November 1st to 12th. To celebrate its 2023 milestone, CINEMANIA will present no fewer than 100 films, including many international, North American, Canadian, and Quebec premieres, selected from the best of Francophone cinema from the year. All films will feature English subtitles and will be accompanied by 150 artists, including 114 international guests. The French seventh art will be celebrated over 12 days at Cinéma Impérial, Musée Cinéma, Cinéma du Parc, Cinémathèque québécoise, Studio-Cabaret at Espace St-Denis, and, for the first time this year, at Cinéma Moderne. 

Opening and Closing Films

The opening film of the festival on November 1st at Cinéma Impérial, in the presence of the director, will be LE PROCÈS GOLDMAN, directed by French filmmaker Cédric Kahn (known for Une vie meilleure and Fête de famille). This film will be released in Quebec on November 3rd. Cédric Kahn has chosen to depict the trial of Pierre Goldman, a left-wing activist facing the death penalty in 1976, by never leaving the courtroom. In the tradition of courtroom dramas, this powerful film realistically portrays a tormented individual in an era marked by the rise of new far-right groups. Presented as the opening film of the Directors' Fortnight at the Cannes Film Festival in May 2023, this gripping courtroom drama has already received critical and public acclaim in France, where it was released on October 4th. More than 45 years after the events, this case that fascinated the French population still resonates in the news. The Opening Gala of the 29th edition, co-hosted by Catherine Beauchamp, is made possible by Sofitel Montréal Le Carré Doré, the official hotel of the festival. 

On Sunday, November 12th, the festival will feature its closing film: SECOND TOUR by Albert Dupontel, presented in its North American premiere at Cinéma Impérial. This satirical drama about the media world features the director in the role of the frontrunner in the French presidential campaign, alongside actress Cécile de France, who plays a disgraced journalist. The closing night is made possible thanks to the support of Air Canada. The film will be released in Quebec in the winter of 2024 (Distribution: AZ Films).

Bell Media Gala

CINEMANIA introduces a new category in its programming: the Bell Media Gala. It will be dedicated to the film LE SUCCESSEUR by Xavier Legrand. The director of this French/Canadian/Belgian co-production, mostly filmed in Montreal in 2022, will be joined by actors Marc-André Grondin, Anne-Élisabeth Bossé, Yves Jacques, Louis Champagne, Vincent Leclerc, as well as producers Sylvain Corbeil (Metafilms) and Alexandre Gavras (KG Productions) to publicly introduce the film at the Cinéma Impérial on Tuesday, November 7th. Xavier Legrand, who won the César Award for Best Film and Best Screenplay with Jusqu’à la garde in 2018, offers another gripping thriller that showcases his undeniable mastery of the genre. The film's theatrical release in Quebec is scheduled for 2024 (Entract Films).

Several International Guests

As is the tradition, audiences will have the opportunity to discover many premieres with renowned guests. Several of them will visit Montreal to promote their films. For example, Cédric Kahn will not only present LE PROCÈS GOLDMAN at the festival's opening but also MAKING OF, a comedy featuring Denis Podalydès, Jonathan Cohen, and Emmanuelle Bercot. Actress Karin Viard will engage with the audience about her roles in MAGNIFICAT by Virginie Sauveur, NOUVEAU DÉPART by Philippe Lefebvre, and UNE NUIT by Alex Lutz. Yolande Moreau will be in Montreal both as a director for LA FIANCÉE DU POÈTE, marking her return behind the camera, and as an actress in CAPTIVES by Arnaud Des Pallières. 

Several prominent female directors in the Francophone cinematic landscape will also attend CINEMANIA: Jeanne Herry with the ensemble film about restorative justice, JE VERRAI TOUJOURS VOS VISAGES, featuring Leïla Bekhti, Adèle Exarchopoulos, Gilles Lellouche, and Miou-Miou; Valérie Donzelli with L’AMOUR ET LES FORÊTS, a thriller about domestic violence starring Virginie Efira and Melvil Poupaud; Catherine Corsini with LE RETOUR, led by Aïssatou Diallo Sagna, who won the César for Best Supporting Actress in La Fracture in 2022; and Stéphanie Di Giusto with ROSALIE and Carmen Jacquier with FOUDRE, representing Switzerland in the Oscars race. Victoria Bedos will also present her directorial debut, LA PLUS BELLE POUR ALLER DANSER.

The festival will also welcome established directors accompanying their works: Thierry Klifa will introduce LES ROIS DE LA PISTE; Kim Chapiron will present LE JEUNE IMAM, and Franco-Swiss director Vincent Perez (Indochine, Fanfan la tulipe, La Reine Margot) will present UNE AFFAIRE D’HONNEUR, in which he also stars.

Switzerland, Country of Honor.

This year, Switzerland is the country of honor at CINEMANIA, with Swiss short and feature films accompanied by numerous guests and events, offering a captivating cinematic journey through Swiss diversity and innovation. Six North American or Canadian premieres among the feature films include LE THÉORÈME DE MARGUERITE by Anna Novion, LA VOIE ROYALE by Frédéric Mermoud, ARDENTE.X.S by Patrick Muroni, DE LA CUISINE AU PARLEMENT by Stéphane Goël, RIVIÈRES by Hugues Hariche, and LES HISTOIRES D’AMOUR DE LIV S. by Anna Luif.

Additionally, two other panel discussions will be held at the Cinémathèque québécoise: the Valais Film Commission will present filming possibilities in peripheral areas, and a cross-discussion between Quebec and Switzerland will address sustainability in audiovisual production.

CINEMANIA PRO - 2nd Edition

Following the success of its inaugural edition last year, CINEMANIA PRO, the professional component of the Festival, returns from November 7th to 10th this year. It aims to provide a space for meetings, exchanges, and reflections for key players in the industry. Expect no less than 40 international guests from the Francophone film world, mostly festival directors, to participate in six conferences, three roundtable discussions, three workshops, and numerous screenings. Immersed in the heart of Quebec's vibrant cultural scene, they will engage in roundtable discussions, conferences, and conversations about major industry topics. These include the regulation of artificial intelligence in creative processes, the use of French in an increasingly international context, representation and inclusion of minorities in cinema, the significance of artist agencies in promoting local talents internationally, and the appeal of territories resulting from the impetus of regional festivals. Similar to last year's focus on Manitoba, CINEMANIA PRO renews its commitment to giving a voice to Francophone artistic communities in Canada (outside Quebec). This year, the focus expands to celebrate not one but three extensive regions: Yukon, Saskatchewan, and British Columbia. Within this context, the festival will host a delegation of artists and professionals, driven by a passionate commitment to promote and disseminate Canadian Francophone culture.

The Quebec Office of the French Language (Office Québécois de la Langue française) is one of the major partners of CINEMANIA PRO this year. On Tuesday, November 7th, a comprehensive overview of the use of French in the workplace of Quebec companies will be presented. Practical challenges and positive aspirations are the primary objectives of these discussions.
